At Any Age, Helmets Make Riding Safer
Date:5/15/2010

single most important factor in people surviving motorcycle crashes," Gardner stated in the news release. "They reduce the risk of head, brain and facial injury among motorcyclists of all ages and crash severities."

The ACEP cites NHTSA numbers indicating that in 2008, helmets saved the lives of more than 1,800 motorcyclists -- a figure that could have risen by another 800 lives saved if all motorcyclists wore helmets. Not wearing a helmet increases the risk of dying from a motorcycle-riding head injury by about 40 percent, experts say.

Gardner and colleagues encourage people of all ages to wear helmets every time they go for a ride on a bicycle or motorcycle, but also when roller skating, rollerblading, skateboarding and/or engaging in a high-contact sport.
