Road traffic crashes ranks among the top 4 cause of death for all children over 5. Helmet use is the single most effective way to reduce bicycle‐related fatalities.
The proper helmet can reduce head injuries by 88%, yet only 29% of children who ride bikes say they always wear helmets. The typical crash occurs within a single mile of home.
