i had seen just a month ago an accident in the road.. a man riding a motorbike was hit by a car in the intersection ..i was shocked and felt weak and scared on what i had just witnessed...its been a long time since i saw like this on the road...the man riding the motorbike was not wearing a helme!..was thrown away and his head hit the pavement...i dont know if hes dead or in critical condition... but if he had only wore helmet during the incident maybe it will save him.... what about you guys..do you wear helmet when riding a motorbike or bicycle? any similar experiences??

Hello vanities, Honestly speaking, it has been years since the last time I rode a bike. I feel afraid of riding a bike on the busy road especially with so many impatient drivers. Never knows when you will get hit. I experienced twice an accident involving a motorcyclist. But they were speeding that time. I have nothing to say about it. I try to be as careful as I can, everytime I drive and follow all the right instructions while driving

That is awful. We teach our daughter about bike safety. She isn't allowed to ride her bike without her helmet. I think we have done a good job. She now points out what other boys and girls are doing wrong. "Mom she isn't wearing a helmet." I hope the guy survived. If he did, I bet he'll wear a helmet from now on.

They have one for my granddaughter for when she rides on the back of their bikes...it's too risky to go without one.

I wouldn't get on one without a helmet. I know several that do and it's scary because most of them die if they are in an accident. It's too risky even if you are a good driver...it's the other guy that might not see you!

I never took my two wheeler without my helmet.. I always wear helmet. This will give you a very much safety while driving, because in the fast world, every one drive on the road at his maximum fast, to finish his work, even though if it is two wheeler, Car, Truck or Bus.. but we should be very causion when we drive on the road, if anything happends for us, nothing we could get back, even though we find the fault with others, what is the result, ultimately you will be affected, even though if the opposite party will get punished, as you affected is affected know.. your affected period will not come back, your pain will not be get suffered by others.. So, think these points before you overtook or over ride on the road.. wait for a second and proceed while you ride on the road. I agree that you are a very good rider, you never come across any of the accident in your life time ever.. but the person who crossed is not like that, if he may hit you what will you do.., so, be caution on the road.. don't forget to wear the helmet..
