Helmet Smart

Helmet Smart
, a program created by AAA, encourages children to wear a helmet while riding their bicycles. To help encourage them further, Moreland Hills Police Officers will be issuing “Safety Citations” to children for wearing their helmets along with a “ticket” for a free cookie from Heinens.

The following are a few tips on how to get your child to wear a bicycle helmet:
  • Establish the habit early on
  • Wear one yourself; be a role model
  • Explain to them that bikes are not toys, but vehicles and therefore they can be seriously injured without a helmet
  • Reward/praise them for wearing a helmet
  • Be consistent; do not let them ride without one – even during short rides down the street!
