I pass a lot of kids when I am bicycle commuting to work. Most kids I see are wearing helmets, so just a different observation from you. Few of them stop for any stop signs, but they wear helmets.

Some kids wear helmets, some don't. The ones who don't make our parenting job much harder when we advise our kids to wear helmet.
When you're driving, you really have to look for kids who bike on the wrong side -- that is just plain wrong--, so remember to look RIGHT for those bikes coming at you when you're getting ready to make a right hand turn and checking for traffic.

The younger kids seem to be good about wearing helmet (usually even buckling them). Its the HS and some middle school kids who hang them from the handlebars.
