To reduce bicycle-related head injuries in children, we propose new regulations be established that mandate the inclusion of approved helmets with the sale of all new children's bicycles.
Currently, purchasing a helmet is a separate economic decision that acts as a barrier to helmet ownership and use.
The inclusion of a helmet with the bicycle would markedly increase helmet ownership.
The increased demand would reduce the manufacturing cost per helmet, so cost of the bicycle with the helmet would be lower than the current retail price of the two separately.
