    Ernie Irvin advocating helmet use.

    Former NASCAR driver Ernie Irvin is working on making a child's bicycle safty helmet that appeals to children and works better then what is on the market. Irvin had to retire from racing early due to head injury, and has a foundation set up for researching better safty equipment for head protection.

    I got this off an interview with him on "Wind Tunnel", a call in show on SPEED Channel hosted by Dave Despain.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Good anything that will get kids to wear helmets is a good thing.

    I know this is off topic but Ernie Irvin was a good racer until he suffered a serious head injury. He was nearly killed and should have retired right there but decided to make a comeback only to suffer another head injury.
