In my opinion on cities to wear helmets while biking, scooting, skateboarding, rollerblading, and skiing I think it's VERY necessary. I think it's safe for you when doing all that stuff. I think it's good because anything could happen without thinking you can get hurt. People may think they won't get hurt but the truth is so many things can happen.
The thing too is the helmets are really ugly not even helmets that are in color that have designs they are still ugly. Like it's better to look nice but it's better to be in safety. They look like if you have three times a bigger head and then rapped up under the chin look ugly too. They are horrible and then riding that infront of people is ugly and kid of embarrassing.
I think it's good for us so we won't get hurt. It's nice and we all should be prepared for when something happens it won't be as bad. Anything could happen especially skiing is crazy because is going down a huge hill of snow and they can flip over and it could be dangerous. Also, with skateboarding it's crazy because it's skating all around and going from one side to another.
Many cities are requiring children under the age of 16 to wear helmets while biking,scooting,skateboarding,rollerblading, and skiing. In my opinion kids 13 and up are old enough to be safe and not crash in there rides. So I think they should change it to 12 and under in my opinion.
Some disadvantages of wearing a helmet is you don't look as cool you know, the ladies don't like that they like a rebel. Also, sometimes the helmet goes in your eyes and you crash. In my town I don't see any kids wearing there helmets so I don't know.
Advantages of having a helmet is when you crash or fall off, the helmet helps you not to crack your head. When you have a helmet you just feel way safer. When I was little me and my friends never wore a helmet, we thought we where cool.
I believe they are making children old as 16 and younger wear bike helmets,because riding a bike without one can be very dangerous. Even though, when I was that age I never wore a helmet because I never liked them they were uncomfortable. Also, there has been a lot of accidents of little kids racing each other and always one ends up hurting himself or herself. One disadvantage of not wearing a helmet you can be having police men chasing you around for not wearing a helmet.
I think is up to the person if they want to wear a helmet. One advantage of wearing a helmet is that when you fall it protects your head and it keeps your head safe. I believe children under 13 should wear a helmet though,because they are the ones who really need them.I think if your 14 and up you don't need a helmet,because theu are older and careful.
There are advantages and disadvantages on everything though. Not all kids would still wear helmets. But, I do think the younger children should wear them. That's simply my opinion and that's what I believe.
Personally I think that wearing a helmet is pretty dumb, And it is not nesasery. Depending on what it is that you are doing.I think that if you are experienced on what it is that you are doing . And also how long you been doing it.
If it is something that you just started to do, then I think that you should wear a helmet. You can really hurt your self if you hit your head on something. But say your just riding a bike home, I don't think that you have to wear a helmet.
Depending on what it is that you are doing. But if you feel like wearing a helmet , then go for it. IF it makes you feel right then do it. If it is something that you are practicing then you should wear one.
Some people think that wearing helmets should be compulsory. I disagree with that statement. I believe such decisions should be left to our discretion.
But then again these ordinances, however arbitrary they might seem to us, are necessary for our safety.
Some advantages of wearing a helmet are safety. You can save yourself from several and long term injuries. Helmets can protect your head and face if you have a visor on there. Not many people wear them though.
Disadvantages are that it looks funny and nobody wears them anymore. No one wears them anymore so they'll make fun of you. People don't wear them because they dont want to deal with people that talk down on them. This could bring the kids down.
People dont wear them and now there getting in trouble for it. Its a wait of time. If they dont wear it well thats there fault to whatever happens to them. The police should just leave them alone because they aren't going to listen.
I think that its good for the kids that are 16 an under should wear helmets. I think its good because many kids at times try to due cool things on there bike skate boards an stuff like that. Many of the times they fall an break there heads or neck an sometimes could even die. It would be better if they had it because it could lower the percentage of them getting badly hurt.
But the the bad thing about this is. That many kids dont or rather not put there helmets on. Many times they dont because they think it looks funny an they look funny.
An it would just waist peoples an those giving fines for not putting on a helmet because they are never going to be putting them on.
That is a really good thing that they are doing that because of the people that great hurt real easy and it a really good thing that they make them be safe.
Its a really good ting that they make helmets because then you wont hurt your head al all because of what is the same as the pros because they were them to and they are good at what they do they get paid for that.
Stop think that you dont need a helmet because you do and make more of therm for every bidy because then they will be safe.
There are many advantages and many disadvantages to wearing helmets while being on the bike, scooting, skateboarding, rollerblading and skiing. Some advantages are not getting a ticket every time they see you without a helmet on. Another advantage is that you won't get hurt at much as if you don't have one on. Some disadvantages would be that you get many tickets when the police sees you. Another disadvantage would be you get a head fracture and almost be dead.
Well it is also the parents fault to not have their kids with helmets. The parents are the ones that are supposed to get the children used to wearing the helmets in the first place. They are suppose to say that it is good for them to be wearing them. If the parents don't tell them that it's good for them then how are they suppose to know when they get bigger.
This is something that everyone should think of when they are actually doing some activities that need in use of a helmet. If they actually think of it I think it's better for everyone to use a helmet at some point because you don't know what might happen at any point. Anything can happen when you just do things without thinking of them.
The idea of law officers and law enforcement wanting make kids under sixteen wear helmets and pads is just stupid. In my opinion this thing is stupid cause you ar trying to make to enfirce something that they will not do.No kid is going to really pay attention to this cause he's going to act all hard and shit.
The advantages of this new idea of safety are the following. The kids might not get as injured as they might have in the first but they could still get a couple of scratches here and there.Also there parents might just feel safer knowing that they are using protective gear while riding either a scooter,bike or skateboard.
My opinion on this while situation is that these kids should not be able to do whatever they want while riding.The law cant really enforce these stupid laws and ideas.Also it is the parents responsibility to see and make sure that their children will be ok.
Well the advantages that they get from wearing helmets and stuff is that they won't get hurt as bad and they won't feel it. Cause if the kids don't wear these things to protect themselves then they will get hurt. So the next time you ride a bike, scooter or skateboard always wear protection. Parents are always worried about what their kids do so run it by them so you won't get in trouble.
And now the disadvantages are that they could brake a leg or hurt something else that they don't want to hurt.
It shouldn't be the government's responsibility to request helmets for little kids or anyone at all. It should be little kid's parents responsibility to asure that their kids have their helmets on. The disadvantage that this should be a new law is that police officers would be wasting there time giving little kids tickets when a lady just got shot on the other block. The advantage is that the cop could save a little kids brain from critical dameg. Waring helmets is good and helps save lives. Do you really think that kids are going to be waring them though. Kids are going to run away when they see a cop. The cop is going to have to chase him down and wast his time when he took a promise to help people from crime. If a little kid cracks his head open, it's their parents fault no the cops. If a little kid gets hurt it's the parents fault because the parent wasn't seeing what his or her kid was doing.
Many cities are requiring under the age of 16 to wear helmets while biking, scooting, skateboarding, rollerblading and skiing. I think that there would be many advantages and disadvantages about requiring to wear helmets under the age 16. An advantage about being required to wear a helmet under the age of 16 would be that they would be more safer when they are on anything with wheels. I think that it is a great thing to do because it can make the rates of children dying or getting injured because they weren't wearing a helmet. Wearing a helmet is a good thing because it can save your life, but if you don't wear it that can be the cause of your death.
There are also disadvantages to not wearing a helmet, the main one would be that you have a higher risk of dying and getting badly injured. Another disadvantage of not wearing a helmet is that police are going to be wasting their time on giving under 16 people tickets all the time. I think that they are going to be wasting lots of time just chasing them around and not worrying about the important things going on around the world.
I think that everyone should have to wear helmets because of the fact that it can save your life. Helmets are very important for any age, I think that everyone should have to wear one but not a lot of people would follow it. Also, parents should have to make the decision on wearing a helmet because it's their child and they have to take of them, it's their responsibility. All I am saying is that a helmet would be nice to wear and more safer for your life and health.
