Helmets

Marcia takes KLEW to task.

As an avid bicyclist, I was pleased to see that you were planning to cover the Bike To Work event and very much looked forward to the story. Unfortunately I was horrified and appalled that your coverage featured riders without helmets. Law enforcement and the medical community in the Valley –as well as those devoted to bicycling –have worked hard to promote helmets for ALL riders…in ALL circumstances. It doesn’t take speed for the impact of your head hitting the ground to cause brain injury. A helmet stands between you and that impact; absorbing the blow that may save you from a life-altering event. Shame on you for setting such a dreadful example.
