How does wearing a helmet while riding a bike save our lives?

Keeping the fun and usefulness of the transport apart, it poses a high risk to ride a bike on the road. There are serious dangers involved and a threat to life when you take to the road. As the motorcycle does not provide structural protection that a car does, drivers have to look after their safety by using safety gear.
