Last week, the Kentucky House of Representatives passed a bill to create a safety measure aimed at protecting bicyclists under the age of 12 by requiring the use of helmets. The measure was championed by Rep. Regina Bunch, R-Williamsburg.
“Many serious bicycling injuries suffered by young Kentuckians are preventable, particularly head injuries,” said Rep. Bunch. “When kids wear helmets, it can literally save a life. I want Kentucky kids to have a lifetime of health, and this bill is an effort toward that goal.”
