Bike helmets should be a must for kids

LANSING, MI (WILX) - There's nothing like taking a bike ride in the summer time with your kids, but make sure they wear a helmet.

Researchers at the University of Michigan's Mott Children's Hospital say almost 20% of parents do not force their kids to wear one.

Almost 60% said their children do not use helmets while riding skateboards.

Nearly 600 kids go to the emergency room every day for bike-related injuries.
