This is a worthy cause to help encourage and promote bike helmet use by children. The most common injury related to bike accidents is head and brain injury. Unfortunalty, head injuries occur even with the use of helmets, however, the use of a helmet greatly reduces the severity of most head injuries. Instead of being a life debilitating injury, use of helmets often limits the head injury to symptoms of headaches and other minor symptoms which usually go away after a few weeks.
