Sung Wook Choi, Won Ju Jung, Ok Jun Kim, Seok Joon Jang, Hahn Shick Lee
ABSTRACT
In Korea, there are about 8 million motor vehicles and one-fourth of it is motorcycle. Last year Korean government report on the motor vehicle accidents claimed 12,781 cases of motorcycle accidents and it account for 5.1% of all of motor vehicle accidents occurred in Korea. But this is too broad analysis and lack of statical values. In general, most of people think motorcycle rider will suffer or die from head injuries sustained with motorcycle accident. Even though mandatory law on wearing helmet during motorcycle ride, but we see too many motorcycle riders not wearing helmet, especially in teenagers. The loss of young person by accident is great loss for family, society and economy of nation. No one will doubt the effectiveness of helmet on reduced incidence of head injuries. And multiple studies from United States of America have clearly demonstrated the benefit of helmets in motorcycle accidents. The following study was undertaken to determine the relationship between head injuries and helmet use in motorcycle accident, as well as analysis of general motorcycle accident.
