Bike Safety

Bicycles are linked to more childhood injuries than any consumer product except automobiles. In fact, each year, more than 500,000 people in the U.S. are treated in emergency departments, and more than 700 people die as a result of bicycle-related injuries.

Children are at particularly high risk for bicycle-related injuries. In 2001, children 15 years and younger accounted for 59 percent of all bicycle-related injuries seen in emergency departments across the U.S.
