        Young ATV Rider

        Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say results of an online study indicate that more than half of young American ATV riders don’t always wear a helmet.

        “Helmet non-use among youth is a particular concern because these riders have a greater likelihood of crashing than adults, and their likelihood of dying or sustaining a serious TBI is much higher,” Bethany West, an epidemiologist at the CDC, told Reuters Health. “We found that the most frequent riders had the lowest consistent helmet use.”
