The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
I thought helmets were a law. I see a lot of kids on bikes and motor bikes and scooters. Any chance you could enforce this.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Our officers are always on the lookout for safety issues. Rafter than negative enforcement, they have a program where they give certificates for a free ice cream when they spot children wearing helmets. When these are not available, there is always an encouraging word to get the message across.
We have had programs where the township gives away bicycle helmets to children who need them.
At the end of the day it is up to us, the parents and grandparents of the children, who are out on the streets. Please make sure your children are wearing helmets whether they are on a bicycle or scooter. They save lives.
