-In 2010, the number of people injured by NOT wearing a bike helmet was 51,000 -- enough people to fill Nationwide Arena in Columbus 2 ½ times.

-Currently in Ohio, estimates indicate that just 10-20% of children wear bike helmets, yet more than 70 percent of children ages 5 to 14 ride a bicycle regularly.

-75 percent of bike-related fatalities would be prevented with a helmet. Helmet use can reduce the risk of head injury by 85 percent and severe brain injury by 88 percent.

-Apart from the automobile, bicycles are tied to more childhood injuries than any other consumer product, including trampolines, ladders and swimming pools.

-Universal use of bicycle helmets by children ages 4 to 15 could prevent between 135 and 155 deaths,
between 39,000 and 45,000 head injuries, and between 18,000 and 55,000 scalp and face injuries annually.

-A $10 bike helmet saves healthcare system $41 per child.

- If 85 percent of the children injured in the U.S. per year wore helmets, we could save up to $256 million in just one year.
