Let us consider this- you are walking inside your house and suddenly hit your head against
a door or an open shelf. It will definitely hurt and there is a good chance that you may also
crack your skull bone. This is at about 5 to 6 km per hour which is our normal walking speed.
Now imagine falling from a bike and hitting your head on the road at a much faster speed, say 20
km, 30 km, and 40 km per hour? Do you honestly believe that your skull can withstand that
much force? What about still higher speeds which people seem to use while riding a bike when
they are in a hurry?
The Most common cause of death involving 2-wheeler accident is — — HEAD INJURY.
What can we do? — — —
- USE GOOD HELMET (ISI MARKED)
- SECURE CHIN/JAW STRIP PROPERLY. NOT USING CHIN/JAW STRIP
IS AS GOOD AS NOT USING HELMET.
- TWO WHEELERS SHOULD HAVE BOTH THE MIRRORS IN PLACE.
