This April, the Road Traffic Act was revised. All cyclists must wear bike helmets regardless of age. According to a survey by the National Police Agency, among the fatal bicycle accidents that occurred in the five years until 2021, 58 percent of cyclist deaths were caused by fatal damage to the head. In addition, those who were not wearing bike helmets at the time of the accident were 2.2 times more likely to die than those who were. Please ensure that children wear helmets not only when they themselves are riding a bicycle but also when they are with you on your bike. To save lives, please keep in mind not to ride a bicycle without a bike helmet.
※The following examples of dangerous cycling are subject to criminal punishment. To avoid traffic accidents, never.
— Enter a rail crossing when the warning bell is sounding or the crossing bar is on its way down.
— Go through a stop sign without stopping.
— Use a smartphone while riding a bicycle.
