COVID-19 UPDATE  

Head injuries make up a large proportion of injuries in car accidents.

Hospital admissions in Canada for head trauma are made up in significant part by car accident victims. Cyclists, pedestrians and those in cars are all likely to suffer head trauma in a collision.

The message from all experts has been clear throughout this year and I think it is worth repeating as we head into the next year.  It only takes a split second of inattention, distraction, or road condition change to allow a serious accident causing brain injury, paraplegia or death to happen.

  • cyclists should wear a helmet at all times
  • drivers should pay attention to the road and slow down
  • pedestrians should be on the sidewalks and not distracted by  in ear headphones or noise cancelling headphones.
  • don't drive drunk
  • wear high visibility clothes when you are running or walking
  • don't be texting or talking on your hand held device when you are driving or riding your bike

We can all work together to decrease the number of catastrophic accidents that happen on our streets.
