Who’s at the greatest risk for bike accidents?
Tragically, the majority of bicycle accidents and deaths in Utah involve children younger than 13 years old. Make sure your child wears a helmet–this cannot be stressed enough. Over 80% of bicyclists that die in accidents every year are not wearing a helmet. Though it is simple and often repeated, helmets save lives. In fact, a helmet will reduce your head injury risk by 85%. It’s also important your child knows the rules of the road before you give the go-ahead for free riding privileges. Be sure to check bike mechanics—especially the brakes—frequently and install a headlight in case your child stays out on the road past dusk.
