Here at the Auburn Hills PD we like to catch people when they are doing something right–not just when they are doing it unsafely. We know that bike helmets save lives so with the help of the Pixley Funeral Home we are rewarding kids with a FREE ICE CREAM CONE gift certificate when a police officer spots a kid wearing a helmet while riding a bike.
There were 204 crashes in Oakland County that involved bicyclists last year. I know from my experience the serious nature of injuries for bicyclists who are involved in a crash and are not wearing a helmet.
Wearing a helmet makes a difference if you are involved in a crash!
So parents set a good example and wear a helmet when you are on a bike ride with your kids and make sure your kids wear their helmet.
