Abstract

This review article demonstrates the clear need for helmet usage in children everywhere. The lives that could be changed and the money that could be saved from needless injury and death is substantial. As physicians and community leaders, we must all do our part to ensure the safety of children. This must be done by joining or initiating a local community campaign. Physicians need to become part of this preventive effort, both with their patients and by example. Hopefully, by following the suggestions of other programs already implemented throughout the United States and working together with the community, we can substantially decrease the number of needles bicycle injuries suffered by South Carolina's children.
