(STUDY FINDS) — ANN ARBOR, Mich. — A study aimed at gauging how well parents and children protect themselves on the road found that nearly one in five parents say their children “never” wear bicycle helmets. The problem is even worse when it comes to skateboards and scooters, with the percentage of children wearing helmets dropping considerably.

In all, 18% of parents admit their kids do not wear helmets on a bicycle. The number balloons to 58% when it comes to skateboarding, and 61% on a scooter.
