While we are improving our own visibility so that cars can see us, lets not forget to take safety precautions for ourselves. Today I witnessed many cyclists (such as the one in this picture) who were riding on the streets and not wearing helmets. Today I had to call an ambulance for a cyclist who had fallen off their bike and hit their head on the street. This cyclist was not wearing a helmet and I feel that their injury may have been less severe if they had been wearing one. By the way, there were not any vehicles near the cyclist when this incident occurred. While we work hard to improve our visibility (I myself am a bike commuter) to those around us, let's not forget that wearing a helmet is the easiest way to be safe.
