Petition Make the wearing of cycle helmets for children law.
Wearing my cycle helmet saved my life! It protected my head when I hit the road and from the hot exhaust when I was trapped under the car. The helmet was amazing as it was damaged and melted but still intact. Now I want all children to have to wear helmets.
My accident happened while cycling to school. I came off my bike head first, landing in front of a car, which drove over me, trapping me beneath. The air ambulance attended and I was flown to hospital. I sustained three breaks, a fracture and lost some teeth.
The consultant said I wouldn't have survived without a helmet.
I want you all to understand it can happen to anyone....as it happened to me!
