HABIT along with Strathroy-Caradoc Police Service promote their Annual Helmet Campaign: Our Community Working Together to Save Kid’s Brains.
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.
These kids got caught wearing they’re helmets so won a prize in past years! Great job, Keep it up!
What if you’re not wearing your helmet?
If kids are not wearing their helmet while biking or rollerblading they will be reminded of helmet safety and the importance of wearing their helmet and a reminder that Wearing your helmet is the law!
