Bicycle Safety: 5 Ways to Help Keep Your Kids Safe on Bikes!

Nearly 700 people die each year from bicycle and motor vehicle accidents. Distracted driving is a real epidemic in our neighborhoods and puts our children at risk for serious injuries or fatalities. 

  • If your child is out biking, make sure that they are extremely cautious around driveways.
  • Encourage them to be careful when biking on roads. 
  • Never dart into and out of traffic. 
  • In fact, a child shouldn’t even ride their bike in the street until they are older than 10 years. 
  • Also, it’s a good idea to always know where your child is going and whom your child is with, even if they’re teenagers.

Be safe!
