The goals of the campaign are to:

  • Encourage youth in our community to wear their helmets and remind them it is the law
  • Reward and encourage the youth in our community who are wearing their helmets to continue to be safe
  • Create awareness regarding the injuries someone could sustain as a result of a bicycle accident when they are not wearing their helmet.

Wear it Right! Helmets don’t work if they are not worn properly! Know the “2V1” Rule to fit your helmet properly.

Be rewarded for wearing your helmet with Ice Cream! You could even win a New Bike!

During the campaign the Strathroy-Caradoc Police Officers will be patrolling our street to award our kids ware are wearing helmets and riding or skating in a safe manner with an Ice Cream Sundae courtesy of Burger King and a ballot to win weekly prizes and a Grand Prize draw of a new *Bike courtesy of Doug & Marion’s Bike Sales & Repairs in Strathroy.

These kids got caught wearing they’re helmets so won a prize in past years! Great job, Keep it up!
