Each year, more than 500,000 people in the United States are treated in emergency departments for bicycle-related injuries. Roughly 700 people die from these injuries—but an estimated three quarters of them would have survived if they had been wearing a helmet. Start now by teaching your children and teenagers the important of helmet safety! In New Jersey, anyone younger than 17 years of age that rides a bicycle or is a passenger on a bicycle, or is towed as a passenger by a bicycle must wear a safety helmet. Initial violators of the helmet law will receive warnings. For minors, the parent or legal guardian may be fined a maximum of $25 for the first offense and a maximum of $100 for subsequent offense(s), if lack of parental supervision contributed to the offense.
