Bicycle injuries involving children as well as adults occur everyday on Jacksonville, Florida roads and other cities. These injuries take place in neighborhoods, drive ways, and parks. Children are also injured by pedal cycle incidents as well. Pedal cycles include tricycles and other toys used by children. A Wisconsin study showed over 2000 emergency room visits in one year from pedal cycle injuries. You can read more about this study at Pedal Cycle Injuries Among Children Under 6 Years Old – A Wisconsin Study. While pedal cycles seem less dangerous than bicycles, parents, teachers, counselors, and adults supervising the children should make sure that the children are riding the pedal cycle away from traffic on an even surface. In addition, helmets should be worn at all times.
