And parents need to wear helmets at all times while riding both to show their kids that wearing a helmet is the adult thing to do as well as to increase the odds that they'll be alive and in shape to raise them.

Also, I understand that the next big and really inexpensive step in automobile safety would be wearing a helmet in the car. I'm game, but in many cars I'd have trouble wearing a baseball cap because I have a very long trunk. I'd love to read more about this. Anyone got any info/ideas?
