Public Safety Tip of the Day: Bicycle Safety:



King County medical and health experts concluded that, between 1998-2002, 3 out of the 5 young people who die from bike-related injuries would have survived if they were wearing helmets. (-King County Medical Examiners Office)

Approximately 75% of all bicycle-related injuries occur among children ages 14 and under. (-NSKC, 2004)

  • Make sure your kids wear a helmet every time they ride.
  • Teach your children about the rules of the road and traffic laws.
  • Children under the age of 10 need adult supervision while riding.
  • Purchase a new helmet for your child after a crash, after 5 years of use, and when your child outgrows it.
  • Make sure the helmet fits correctly. One study found that children whose helmets fit poorly are at twice the risk of a head injury in a crash compared with children whose helmet fit is excellent.


Thank you,
