We would like to share the importance of children wearing helmets whilst riding a bicycle, especially near a busy road and city like ours.
During these winter months roads become busier, nights become darker and the number of pedestrians/cyclists on or near pavements also increases, so wearing a helmet on a bicycle could potentially be lifesaving.
Bike helmets can reduce the risk of brain injury or death by up to 85 percent. Yet, only about 15 percent of all children nationally wear a helmet when they ride a bike. Increasing the number of children who wear bike helmets could greatly reduce injuries and deaths from bicycle-related accidents.
