News Highlights Existing Concerns Over Helmet Safety

8 children on bikes were killed in 2012 which was double the amount in 2008 but there were no child deaths.

There were serious injuries to 21 adults and 1 child recorded between January and July this year. ‘Serious injuries’ were recorded as broken bones, flesh wounds and crushing injuries.

Details of the accidents including whether or not a helmet was worn were not always detailed.

John Siddall from the Road Safety Partnership, said children were more likely to fall off cycles than adults but that adults tend to go faster, increasing their chances of a more serious injury, plus adults are usually travelling in more dense traffic.

John said: “You are not going to get more harm from wearing a helmet; you could just stand a chance of saving yourself,”

He maintained that figures were low in Lincolnshire and that the number of adult road deaths was fairly level at around 2 or 3 a year. He said: “It is in single figures, the fatalities, it always has been,”
