Description:Protective measures having been taken by a careful father, this dad and his two young children were on their way, as they embarked on a Georgian bicycle trip. Riding behind her father, the daughter was riding her own bike, while the son, seated in a small child-safe bicycle seat, was riding on the same bike as dad (see PHIL 13802). All three were wearing aerodynamic safety helmets, and clothing to protect them from the sun, wind and insects. The only thing missing, was a piece of outerwear, which was very bright in color, allow for a greater degree of rider visibility.

Inadequate Use of Helmets

"Bicycle helmets might prevent approximately 56% of bicycle-related deaths. Proper use of bicycle helmets can eliminate 65%--88% of bicycle-related brain injuries and 65% of serious (i.e., facial fractures and lacerations seen in the emergency department) injuries to the upper and middle regions of the face". See the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) link below, for additional helmet-related injury prevention information below.

Each year, more than 500,000 people in the US are treated in emergency departments, and more than 700 people die as a result of bicycle-related injuries.

Children are at particularly high risk for bicycle-related injuries. In 2001, children 15 years and younger accounted for 59% of all bicycle-related injuries seen in US emergency departments.
