Summer activity-related head injuries are becoming more common and bicycling, water sports, and baseball/softball are the cause. Cell phones appear to be part of the problem for cyclists, as texting and riding can be just as dangerous as texting and driving. Avoid distractions and always wear a helmet. As for pool safety, be sure to only dive in deep water and read signs near the pool that will help keep you and your family safe.
