Why my family and I wear helmets when we ride our bikes!

A white paneled delivery truck ran over a UW-Madison graduate student’s head on Division Street Friday afternoon and, except for a concussion, he wasn’t hurt.

Eye opener

You see, his head looked as though it was the first part of his body to hit the ground. Scary. J. Fry has about a 1.5 inch cut right above his left eye which was bleeding pretty bad so it made it difficult to see if there were any other cuts. That sut ended up being the only one plus the usual skinned knee, elbow, and hip. Within a couple of minutes he was joking around and was in really good spirits although, I’d be willing to bet that he is pretty sore today.

Ok, it is not why, but these are two really good examples demonstrating the benefits of helmets.
