Recent UK poll shows that 10% of cyclists would quite biking if there was a compulsory helmet law.

30% would ignore the rule and keep riding without a helmet.

See Compulsory helmets would make one in ten cyclists quit riding
 
The study was conducted by the Institute of Advanced Motorists which surveyed over 4,000 people for the poll

One interesting component of the survey showed that cyclists did not think that helmets were as important as conspicuous clothing and lights.

I may look bad when I ride, but you can’t miss bright red, yellow and several flashing lights!
 
The survey showed that people are not anti-helmet, the just believe it should be a personal choice, although 10% of those polled fell helmets did not work.
