It Can Make Or Break Your Neck!
by Susan Ottevanger
"BUT THEY WERE WEARING A HELMET!" is a cry that follows many accident reports of extensive bodily damage.
The helmets worn while bicycling, scooting and skating can do a lot of good if worn properly. They can do more harm than good if worn too high on the forehead. It may look and feel a little cooler to expose more of your face, but here's 2 reasons to cover up some more. Worn too high, you lose the protection of your face during impact - the helmet should hit the pavement before your nose. Worn too high, the back edge of the helmet can dig into your neck, causing whiplash or worse.
While the more expensive, adult helmets are designed to be difficult to wear incorrectly, this is not the case for the cheaper ones or children's wear.
