The Brain Injury Assocation of New Jersey is taking helmet safety out on the road.  Recently, they visited some New Jersey high schools to talk to teens about wearing bike helmets.  The idea of this initiative is not only to educate older kids about the dangers of brain injury, but to find out what teens think about helmets and solicit ideas on how to make the idea of wearing helmets more appealing.  New Jersey law requires children under the age of 17 to wear bicycle helmets, however, once they reach high school, few children actually wear them.

The Asbury Park Press featured a story on this program.  You can read the article here.
