It's Bicycle Season
It's bicycle season. The tires are pumped up, the chain has been cleaned. Maybe you'll even give in and buy your youngest those cycling shorts with the neon green stripe down the side. But wait, there's something missing. A helmet. Without a helmet, anyone who rides a bike simply isn't geared up for safety. So, when you're going biking, Head Out with a Helmet.
Bicycle Helmet Law:
By law, all bicyclists under the age of 14 are required to wear approved bicycle helmets when bicycling or riding as passengers on bicycles in New York State. The maximum penalty for an offense is a $50 fine. However, if a parent can prove that a helmet has been obtained, the fine will be waived.
