It is estimated that more than 700 people pass away every year due to bicycle accidents. While bicycling remains a healthy mode of transportation for millions of Americans, there are some safety precautions that should be followed to prevent injury. Reportedly, for children of the ages, 5-14, less than half of bicycle riders wear helmets. Also, as people grow older, they are even less likely to wear a helmet. However, helmets are essential when preventing head trauma while riding a bike.
