Wearing Your Helmet: It's Worth the Cost

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 48% of children ages 5-14 wear helmets when riding bicycles. Of the over 500,000 annual bicycle injuries requiring emergency room care, more than 26,000 of these are children and adolescents who received traumatic brain injuries from not wearing a helmet. Helmets cannot prevent accidents from happening but they can severely decrease the level of injury when accidents do occur.


There's a myriad of reasons why people don't wear helmets. Some excuses are that they are uncomfortable, or the person is only riding in the neighborhood. But even small children crashing in their own driveways can receive traumatic head injuries from their heads hitting the pavement.


The one excuse that shouldn't be a problem is affordability. Helmets run a range price wise but there are actually several resources where you can get a helmet for free or at a reduced cost.


Here are three sources for free or inexpensive helmets.
