Iowa is one of only three states that does not have any laws related to helmet usage. While 22 states have helmet use laws applying to minor bicyclists and 47 have helmet use laws for motorcyclists, Iowa has neither law. As a brain injury rehabilitation provider, On With Life sees the impact of no helmet law, and we'd like to educate and encourage our lawmakers to consider passing those laws in Iowa.
In the summer of 2021, we were able to give out 800 free helmets in our communities, including Glenwood, Coralville and Ankeny. We hope to give more helmets away next summer - stay tuned for further details!
