no more accidents

Bike helmet safety is a big problem in our society.People do not realize that a bike helmet to a biker is the same as a seat belt to a motorist.We as bikers need all the protection that we can get since we don't have the tank-like protection of a '88 Ford Tempo.So now I am going to tell you a story of a personal experience, the basics to a helmet and some statistics
Even though bike helmets are designed to lessen the impact in one particular spot and disperse the force throughout the helmet.The helmet however is not the most safest thing to but in our society.Most manufactures today tend to make helmets that have a lot of holes and are made for fashion instead of for being a good helmet. The plastic coating on most helmets is there to prevent less friction when you are sliding down on your head.The air holes on the helmet provide better air flow and a fresh new style but they lessen the fact of the force upon impact will have less of a space to disperse the force into.Do not get me wrong all the bicycle helmets on the market pass at least the minimum of the standard.In Austrailia the market had to lower the standard of their helmets because they were soo expensive, so that people would buy their helmets.
Being in a bike accident is a very tramatizing thing to go through.I went through several accidents, but one accident in particular knocked some sense into me about helmet safety.
One summer morning I woke up like every other day.I did all the normal things one would do in the morning like taking a shower, eating breakfast and getting dressed.After I got myself all set up to go out for the day, I called up one of my friends to go do something.It was another one of San Francisco's beautiful weather days so we decided to go bicycle riding and to play some basketball.So, then I start to head out of my house to get my bicycle ready for departure about 10am.
