Most of the nearly 1,000 fatal bicycle-related injuries annually could be prevented if riders used safely helmets.
Helmet use by adult bicyclists has received relatively little attention because educational campaigns to promote helmet use generally focus on children.
Helmet use by adult and child bicyclists at 120 suburban and rural sites in three Maryland counties was observed on two Saturdays in 1990-91 during an evaluation of the impact of a mandatory helmet law.
Concordance or discordance of helmet use within various groups of bicyclists-adults only, adults with children, and children only- was recorded.
