Bloomberg News reports a study by Virginia Tech and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that examined how bike helmets can reduce concussions. The study found that “Urban-style helmets – which have nearly solid covers with few vents – and those that haven’t adopted the latest anti-concussion technology were more than twice as likely to result in injuries.” Bloomberg reports that statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that there were 81,000 emergency visits in 2015 due to bike-related injuries, and 840 cyclists were killed in bike-car accidents in 2016, the highest figure since 1991.
