Bicycle safety

March 25, 2015   ·   0 Comments

A long winter is almost over. The sun is coming out and with it, cyclists will soon be on our roads.
The police would like to remind drivers that children on bicycles will be sharing our roads again. They are excited to be back on their bikes after such a long winter, and they may not be watching for cars. Slow down in residential areas and school zones. Be prepared to stop when passing them, and watch out for kids playing on the road. Adults will also be out on bicycles, sometimes in groups. Be courteous when passing; share the road and leave lots of room.
Parents, please talk to your kids about bike safety. Make sure they wear an approved helmet when riding, and remind them that they must share the road with cars. Supervise them when playing on or near the roadway.
Adult cyclists must also exercise caution. Remember to ride single file in groups, wear a helmet, and obey the rules of the road. Wear reflective clothing, and make sure you are seen.
Let’s all enjoy the springtime weather, and let’s not have a tragedy on our roads.
