Between 70% and 80% of bicyclist fatalities are due to brain injuries, reports the Brain Injury Association of America. Many of these deaths can be prevented with the proper use of helmets.
The Delaware General Health District and the Delaware County Safe Communities/Safe Kids Coalition promote bicycle safety at community events and schools throughout the year. Bicycle safety education for children, teachers, parents and caregivers help to reduce unnecessary injuries and deaths, keeping summers safe, healthy and fun.
Bicycle safety education programs are available to non-profit groups at no charge!
