Bicycles, when ridden correctly, are an absolutely safe, healthy, and eco-friendly form of transportation. However, in case of accident, they can leave the rider completely devastated with injuries, as they are far less protective than a regular vehicle. This is why it is so absolutely vital for a bicyclist to wear a helmet at all times. Even if you are one of the most careful cyclists on the road, you cannot ensure everyone else on the road is following these rules as adamantly as you are. Therefore, the risks of accident or injury are high.
In fact, being in a bicycle accident without the protection of a helmet can not only result in devastating brain, facial, or head injuries, and these injuries can absolutely be fatal. Victims of head injuries who are lucky enough to survive are often left bereft of much of the quality of their life. Now more than ever, laws are governing for bicyclists to wear a helmet the same way a driver is asked to wear a seatbelt–it is just as, if not more, important.
