Wear a Bike Helmet
when riding your bike!

Woodbridge Township Police Department Targets Bicycle Safety
WPD To Issue “Safety” Summons For Wearing Bicycle Helmets
~ Summons Good For FREE Ice Cream Cone at Colonia Dairy Maid ~
Woodbridge - Mayor John E. McCormac and the Woodbridge Police Department (WPD) announce a summer bicycle safety campaign targeting bicyclists under age 17.  WPD officers on patrol will issue a “safety” summons to bicyclists wearing safety helmets – state law requires children under the age of 17 to wear a bicycle safety helmet while riding a bicycle, roller blades, skateboard or scooter.  The “safety” summons is good for a FREE ice cream cone at Colonia Dairy Maid (1075 St. Georges Ave., Colonia.)

Besides the benefit of possibly getting a free ice cream cone, the other benefit of wearing a helmet is possibly preventing a head trauma if your child has an accident on his or her bike... surely that is also a really good reason to make them wear a helmet...

  1. The kids will surely love to hear this news. A good ice cream is what they need after sweating out from biking. Of course, the safety of wearing a healthy is very important.
