Suggestions for articles about wearing helmets
Hey guys,

I'm writing a research paper for my college class and I was wondering if anyone had some favorite articles about why you should wear helmets, statistics or articles about horror stories (i.e. Courtney King-Dye and the like...already used her though) of falling off without a helmet.

Anything would be appreciated! Not asking you to do my research for me. I already have 15 +. Just looking for new ones :)

I dont have any "horror " stories but i did see a girl fall of once and her hat just split in2, turned out she had a hard fall the week b4, they think that might have damaged the hat.. so apart from wearing the hat, make sure the one you have is safe and has no bad cracks.. i think most companies recommend changing your hat at least every yr or 2.. well i suppose that would depend on how much u fall of lol
