Do bicycle helmets make a difference? Should a child wear a bicycle helmet every time that he or she rides a bicycle? Is the price of a bicycle helmet worth it? Should every parent or child care provider make sure that a child wears a bicycle helmet? The answer to all of these questions is YES. A bicycle helmet is an important safety measure that should be used every time that a child gets on a bicycle whether it is for a simple ride in the neighborhood or a longer bicycle ride. In Maricopa, Arizona, officials with the fire department reported that a boy was airlifted to a local hospital after suffering a bicycle riding related accident. The boy was knocked unconscious as a result of the incident. It was reported that the boy fell off of his bicycle to avoid hitting a van. A spokesperson with the Maricopa Arizona Fire Department reported that the boy avoided more serious personal injuries and more serious head injuries because the boy was wearing a helmet.
