Both good news and bad on the studies conducted related to head injuries in cities that have implemented bike-sharing programs.  While head injuries as a proportion of bodily harm for bikers went up, the total number of bicycle related injuries actually declined.  As an attorney that has represented bicycle accident victims with severe head injuries, I still feel that bike-sharing programs ought to provide helmets for their riders or mandate that riders using a bike-share cycle use a helmet.
