Helmets

I think all people should be required to wear helmets no matter their age. It is very dangerous to not wear one, for many reasons. A helmet will protect your head from hard hits that you will encounter when you fall off your motorcycle, bike, scooter, etc. Wearing a helmet will save you from getting a mangled face. Having you come home is a better feeling then you going home to a grave. Since some people feel that they are too cool to wear a helmet, let me advise you that having an attitude like that is not smart. When you wear this helmet it offers you protection from head injuries that occur when you fall. Another advantage to wearing your helmet is that it also can protect your eyes and face from flying rocks and other debris. Not to mention all the bugs that will hit your face and get in your eyes. To prove to you that helmets work and you will be cool wearing one, I will tell you about the deaths that occurred before an after the helmet law was put in to effect in 1992. The law appears to have lead to more than one-third decrease in the number of bicycle deaths. Of the 212 overall deaths in New York, in 1999, 60% occurred in the pre law period and nearly 40% occurred afterwards. In contrast the percent of bicyclists wearing helmets at the time of a fatal crash jumped from roughly 25% in the pre-law period to 85.5 % in the post law period, the investigators found. During both pre-law and post-law periods, however, bicyclists who wore helmets were 70% less likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury, then were their peers that did not use helmets, study findings indicate. Now think about wearing a helmet the next time you go on a bike ride, or ride a scooter, skateboard, or decide to go rollerblading. Is it safe? Is it likely you will get injured? Think about your decision before you just decide your to cool to wear a helmet. There are actually really cool designs that helmet companies produce, where it will match the color
