I had the unfortunate experience of being in the hospital the night a co-worker of mine was there because her son was hit by a car while riding his bike.

He succumbed to the head injuries he sustained due to not wearing a helmet and passed away that night. He was 9 years old!

I myself have been hit by a car when I was younger, while I wasn’t on a bike, I can relate to what it feels like.

If someone decides to not wear a helmet while riding, that is their decision, but they might as well right their death notice because at one time or another it will catch up with them and most likely when they least expect it.
