This Company Makes Bike Helmets So Chic (and Eco) You’ll Want to Sell Your Car and Bike Everywhere https://t.co/7YeZS05OHn
Kids aren’t the only ones who flout bike safety because helmets just aren’t cool. Plenty of grownups go sans helmet, too, which is just downright dangerous, According to the Snell Memorial Foundation , a non-for-profit dedicated to promoting helmet safety , “Every year the estimated number of bicycling head injuries requiring hospitalization exceeds the total of all the head injury cases related to baseball, football, skateboards, kick scooters, horseback riding, snowboarding, ice hockey, in-line skating and lacrosse.” To illustrate with numbers, in 2015 45,000 bicyclists were injured in traffic-related accidents, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Those are some strong arguments for wearing a helmet–no matter what age you are.
