Bike Safety Stressed to El Centro, California Students

Around 80 children in the El Centro, California area were recently treated to a demonstration of bicycle safety put on by a member of the local police department at the library.  The officer enlisted the kids themselves to help him provide instructions about such things as laws, the proper equipment to wear, and the advisability of riding on the sidewalk.  He stressed the importance of basically riding a bike as if vehicle operators couldn’t see the rider, which is often the case.  One particularly enthusiastic student, whom the officer pegged as a star student for his knowledge of the topic prior to the event, explained the importance of affixing a light to the bike when riding at night.
