Why do many people wear helmets while riding a bike, scooter, skateboard, or participating in risky sports? Eventually, many countries have been applying helmet laws to cyclists and motorcyclists. You have probably heard that some people refuse to wear helmets because they mess up their hair, they are unpleasant and too hot. Of course, we can’t deny those discomforts. But wearing helmets save people’s lives and minimize the risks of brain damage.
In a crash, those who wear a helmet are less likely to suffer serious head trauma than those who do not. So, which would you choose? Your comfortability or your safety?
