Topic - Why don't we wear helmets when travelling by car?

BruceWee - on 19 May 2013
Just wondering why I've never heard anyone recommending helmet use for car occupants. Just been doing some reading:

The first link says that 30% of serious injuries amongst teens involved in car accidents are head injuries. The second says that 40 to 60% of ALL mild traumatic brain injuries are caused by car accidents.

Given the fact that people get very worked up about wearing helmets during climbing and cycling why does no one even suggest wearing helmets in cars?
