Additional Information

I am a parent off my 11 year old son who had recently had serious injury to his head due to not wearing a helmet on a bike. He has fractured his skull and had a bleed on the brain and is very lucky to b alive. All because he thinks it's not cool to wear a helmet but this safety equipment does protect lifes, save lifes or permanent damage to the skull or brain. Alot off people are using bikes alot more with the current situation and now is the time to make this a law to wear a helmet to protect all ages
