I've always been a helmet advocate. I figure why not? If there is a chance it will help prevent an excessive injury, then I'm all for it, especially when my head is involved. Heck I cry when I hit my head on the point of the top pantry cabinet that I forgot to close when I was getting out my baking items for bread or such. I guess the safety issue is built in, I know I wore my seatbelt from day one when I was learning to drive. I mean it all just doesn't make sense, commonly, logically, or emotionally in my mind, not to be safe in these ways.

I picked this little laminated handout up at the PA Farm Show in the exhibit hall, and didn't know what to do with it when I got home, So I thought I'd share it with you. The text reads:

How to properly fit a helmet
A. Fit the helmet low and level on the forehead.
B. Tighten the chinstrap, with the V of the side straps meeting just below the ear.
C. Adjust the pads inside so it feels snug, secure, and comfortable.
