|: ....Maybe they should make helmets optional too, might knock some sense into their heads.
Almost no one wears helmets at the park I go to in Round Rock. Usually, there is me, my son, and one other kid who wears a helmet. Then, if the old school skateboarders join me in the bowl, that number might sometimes double.
Helmets are a requirement for those under 18, and at least 90% of those w/o helmets are under 18. Just ain\'t cool to wear one, until someone dies.
List of skateboard fatalities
UC Santa Cruz student dies after skateboard crash in Capitola
Tech student dies from skateboard accident
Man Dies in Skateboarding Accident
The list goes on and on. There are few enough of us as it is.
Please.....wear your helmet!!
