Making A Difference

Just Cuz Helmets Matter

Millions of Americans ride bicycles, but less than half wear bicycle helmets. For example, a national survey conducted in 2001-2003 found that only 48% of children ages 5-14 years wore bicycle helmets when riding (1). Further, older children were less likely to wear helmets than younger children.

In 2010 in the U.S., 800 bicyclists were killed and an estimated 515,000 sustained bicycle-related injuries that required emergency department care. Roughly half of these cyclists were children and adolescents under the age of 20 (2). Annually, 26,000 of these bicycle-related injuries to children and adolescents are traumatic brain injuries treated in emergency departments (3).

Any bicyclist who does not wear a bicycle helmet is at increased risk of head injury.

Helmets sell in bike shops from $30 up, or in discount stores for $15 and up. A good shop helps with fitting, and fit is important for safety. Lab tests show that a discount helmet is equally protective if you take the time to fit it carefully on your child. All helmets are cheap for their benefit, so don't wait for a sale.
