TLS: Our ‘Click-it & Lick It’ Program is Back for its 9th Season! Wear a Helmet & receive an Ice Cream Coupon!

The Lakewood Scoop’s ‘Click-it & Lick It’ program is back for the 9th year!

It’s simple – wear a helmet and get a coupon for a free ice cream!

TLS recognized the need for increased awareness and safety in regards to helmet-wearing in Lakewood, so we decided to do something about it. But since summonses can’t be issued, we figured a treat would do the trick.

As a result, the first of its kind ‘Click-it and Lick it’ was born – founded and sponsored by TLS.

In the coming weeks, patrol officers from the Lakewood Police Department will be patrolling with bundles of gift cards like the ones pictured, and if they observe your child with a helmet, he or she will be receiving the card for a free kiddie ice cream at Sprinkles (located in the Gourmet Glatt Plaza on Route 9, and in Todd Plaza). It’s that simple!

(Talking about Sprinkles for a moment, Lakewood’s favorite ice cream shop, did you know they can come to you for your next birthday party, day camp or corporate event? That’s right – with a full bar of shakes, crepes, waffles, smoothies and much more!)


In addition to the positive reinforcement aspect of the program, we felt the program will also increase the comfort level of children when approaching police officers to report a crime, suspicious behavior, or G-d forbid if the child is lost.

Cards will ONLY be given out by patrol officers in a MARKED police car. No private citizens whatsoever will be distributing these cards. Children should be told never to approach a stranger’s vehicle – even if he or she claims to be from the Law Enforcement community. If you see someone other than a police officer attempting to give a child the ice cream card, please report it to the LPD & TLS immediately.

  1. Why is the face blocked out, of the kid on the bike who IS wearing a
    helmet ? Why not give his parents some nachas, by seeing their kid
    getting a free ice cream ticket ?

  2. thank you for this safety initiative can we also have a program for pedestrians to wear a reflector in the evening? perhaps a company can advertise on them?

  3. Respectfully alter_bachur, wearing reflectors at night is a superb suggestion, also not walking in the streets also helps out even more tremendously, have a wonderful Shabbat.
