Bike Pic Feb 11, Wearing a Bike Helmet Can Save Your Life So Don’t forget It!

Did you know that wearing a bike helmet reduces the risk of head injuries by at least 45%, brain injuries by 33%, facial injuries by 27% and fatal injuries by 29%? This is according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and more than 500,000 people visit emergency rooms in the United States with bicycle-related injuries. According to those nearly 85,000 people had head injuries in 2009. It is estimated that up to 85% of head injuries could be prevented through proper usage of helmets. So make sure you wear a helmet and protect your noggin!
