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.
