How Much Safer are You with a Bike Helmet?
There is much evidence to support the wearing of helmets and the crucial safety role they play for the wearer. The U.S. NHTSA considers wearing helmets “the single most effective way to reduce head injuries and fatalities from bicycle crashes.”
And while helmets might not prevent crashes or guarantee survival, they are an important secondary safety feature and can reduce the risk of severe head and brain injuries in an accident.
Data from hospitals show that 40% of cyclists and 45% of child cyclists suffer head injuries at some point in their lives. Approximately 75% of cyclist fatalities have major head injuries. Meanwhile, a Cochrane review suggested helmets reduced the risk of injury to the head and the brain by 65%-88%, and the upper and mid-face by 65%.
