The February 2009 issue of Consumer Reports Magazine asks: How often do Americans exhibit risky behavior?
The Consumer Reports National Research Center recently asked 1,000 Americans how often they did an assortment of risky behaviors. And among other findings the magazine reports that “58 percent never wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.”
58 percent never wear a helmet?
To me, that number sounds extraordinarily high. The vast majority of cyclists I see are wearing helmets. In fact, I can’t even recall the last time I saw someone not wear a helmet when riding a bike.
What is your experience?
