Although it may seem like common sense to wear a helmet, many do not. There are so many different situations when helmets should be used, such as riding a bike or motorcycle, on construction sites, snowboarding, skiing, and skateboarding. But some people want to feel the wind in their hair or maybe they don't feel as free with a helmet. Whatever the reason is, we're hoping that we can change their minds and put safety first by wearing a helmet.
Check out the photos below and you'll be convinced that a helmet is essential. Who cares if it ruins your hair or your appearance — your life is way more important than that.
If this person was wearing a skull cap on his motorcycle, the car that ran the red light and hit him would of left him with no lower jaw.

He crashed into a wall at 49 mph. How did he go that fast on a bike, we're not sure.

Never hate on something that will make you stand between life and death.
It definitely would have been a bad outcome.
If you can still get a concussion with a helmet on, imagine what would happen with it off.
This could almost pass for special art work.
You never know what or who you'll encounter, like Wolverine...
That duct tape though. Is it really helping?
Or in even worst matters, death.
Our prayers go out to this guy.
Anyone else feel like they're being stared at by an eye in here?
Nope, it's a "wear it or there's a chance you'll die" choice.
Can't be more self explanatory than this.
You never know what will happen.
This would have been deadly!
The person in this helmet had his head take a big impact against a tree, directly hitting his face. The doctor told him he was lucky he was wearing a full-face helmet!
He got hit by a car while it was turning left and he flew into the windshield.
Don't be that person who doesn't wear one for the sake of looking cool.
Couldn't be more straight-forward than this.
Just because snow is nice and fluffy, it doesn't mean accidents won't happen.
This particular officer was saved because he was wearing his helmet when a bullet struck at his head.
