Bicycle Helmet Safety

Helmet

The warm weather is here and people are enjoying being out and about on their bicycles and scooters.  Now is a good time to remember the importance of bicycle helmet use and proper fit.  A Cochrane review found that helmets provide a 63% to 88% reduction in the risk of head, brain and severe brain injury for all ages of bicyclists.  Helmets provide equal levels of protection for crashes involving motor vehicles (69%) and crashes from all other causes (68%).  Injuries to the upper and mid facial areas are also reduced 65%.  Wearing a properly fitted helmet is vital to reducing your risk.

See our friends quick video from Safe Kids World Wide to ensure you are wearing your helmet correctly.
