Teach kids to ride safely

With the approach of summer vacation, I wish to remind parents it is their responsibility to teach their children to be safe while riding their bicycles.

It is New York state law that helmets be worn, and that children have working brakes, reflectors and obey traffic laws when riding.

Join me in this effort to help make our children safe and teach them the importance of this issue.
