How Safe Are Your Children?
It has been reported recently by the Clinical Research Centre Perak (CRC) that 44% of school-going children in an experiment do not wear motorcycle helmets when riding to school, and that the percentage of children not wearing helmets is higher when they are transported to school by an adult.
Parents should be responsible for the safety of their children and should encourage the use of motorcycle helmets. Statistics quoted by the World Health Organization show that helmet use reduces the chance of serious head injuries in motorcycle accidents by up to 45%. Injuries from motor-vehicle accidents can lead to permanent disability, loss of independence and loss of potential in children.
Let us do our part in ensuring the well-being and safety of our children.
