"They told me the lid is sawed in half and taken off at the hospital"

That's what i'm told they did to my helmet after my March 2012 get off at Texas Mile.
Too bad they discarded the pieces before my pals could get to them. 
It might have helped reconstruct the accident.
I don't remember anything

Karl, thanks for the link, I plan to investigate.  The other item of interest for me is some sort of neck brace, but I don't know if they will allow an appropriate range-of-motion i.e. can you still get into a decent tuck.

A while ago I thought they sold a little rubber bulb for like $5 that goes along with this device. I was going to buy it and tape it in a place where it was visible and out of the way.

It seems like a very good idea IMO. They can always choose not to use it. 

That or they make a helmet that easily splits in two lol.
