Helmets for Cyclists – level 1

14-11-2019 07:00

In the US, bikes become more popular. The problem is that a lot of people who ride a bike do not wear a helmet. A helmet is very important because it protects a cyclist’s head.

There are very many accidents. Many people die because they hurt their heads. Recently, a lot more cyclists die in crashes with cars. It is very important that cyclists are safe.

An agency says that helmets are necessary for all cyclists in all US states. Currently, it is not necessary that all cyclists wear helmets.

Difficult words: protect (to keep something safe), cyclist (a person who rides a bike), crash (an accident when a car hits another vehicle or a person).
