A five year study reveals only 11-percent of children treated for bike related injuries in los angeles county ... were wearing a helmet.

That's despite a California state mandate requiring bike helmets for all children under 18.

Researchers say children older than 12, low income and minority children were the least likely to wear a bike helmet.

They stress the need to target these groups in future bicycle safety programs.
