Return of medieval-armor 'cycling' suits topped off with deep-sea diver helmets?

Hoping for this?

...but only have this...

This is a good example of how disconnected the government is from reality...they spend millions of dollars, if not billions, for a reality that does not exist...they probably had to pay that guy to ride in the bike lane for the photo...

When I used to ride around my neighborhood, sometimes at night I felt the best defense was to be very inconspicuous. I feel that I am the best prevention from being hit by knowing where NOT to be. I won't wear a helmet designed and legislated by a team of experts who are not riding along side me, seeing what I see and don't really know each situation. Air bags were a great idea, however killed babies, safety belts in construction were a great idea, until it was noted the internal damage done was nearly as bad as if not used. Hard hats were a great idea that caused me so many neck injuries due to the vision blocked by the visor that I now have three deflated discs.

In summary I would like to see all testing done directly by those who will profit the most and those who are proponents. Let the unintended consequences fall on them and their babies first, before unleashing onto the public. I think the proponents of driver-less cars should on bicycles in front of their proposed inventions just to prove their safety.
