Me! It's red , not pink
ps. I've had one son hit by a car - no injury to him, but his helmet-encased head hit and smashed it's windscreen and another son crash into a concrete post - no injury to his helmet-encased head, but his helment was trashed. One of my fellow F-troopers bit the dust in a crit race - her helmet-encased head suffered no injury, but her helmet was cracked right through. I accept that if an accident is bad enough, nothing much is going to save you, but a properly adjusted, well fitted helmet will protect your head in many situations.
Besides, magpies bounce off them!
