Cycle helmets - Use a helmet not your head!
Many of those that wear cycle helmets do so because they have had that ‘near miss’ but many are not so lucky and either die or suffer significant injury.
Nationally, around 19,000 people are admitted to hospital every year as a result of a cycling collision. Almost one quarter of the cyclists killed or injured are children. Around three quarters of cyclists killed have major head injuries.
Head injuries, ranging from fatal skull fractures and brain damage to minor concussion and cuts, are very common injuries to cyclists. Hospital data shows that over 40% of cyclists and 45% of child cyclists suffer head injuries and over 80% of those killed in collisions on rural roads.
Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership are working with schools and academy head teachers and governors to adopt a policy where all those who cycle to school must wear a safety helmet, including teachers and support staff. Brain injury charity, Headway, and Halfords (Lincolnshire) are supporting the campaign.
Halfords have kindly agreed to offer 15% off the purchase of cycle safety helmets in their Lincolnshire stores until 31 August 2013, with the voucher available to download from the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership webpage.
