PREVENTING BICYCLE, SKATEBOARD AND OTHER WHEELED-SPORT INJURIES
Did You Know?
Every two minutes, a child is treated in an emergency room for an unintentional cycle-related incident.
More children are seen in emergency rooms for injuries related to riding toys than any other toy.
Helmet use is the most effective way to reduce bicycle-related fatalities.
Non-motorized scooters cause more injuries to kids than any other toy.
If 85% of all children wore helmets every time they rode their bike for one year, an average of $109 to $142 million in lifetime medical costs would be saved.
