Bicycling Safety Tips:
East Lyme Public Safety wants to Remind you to:
Wear a bicycle helmet every time you get on a bike. Helmets can reduce your risk of head injury by up to 85% in a bicycle crash.
Supervise younger children and assure that they ride with supervision in safe areas away from traffic.
Teach and have older children practice the “rules of the road“ for safe biking.
Make sure bicycles are in good repair and the right size for the children riding them.
Wearing clothing with reflective materials can help make bicyclists more visible.
Stay safe and enjoy your summer!
