Learning bike safety

4-12_SCHOOLSfairgrievebus

 

Safety Sue, the bike safety puppet, operated by Fairgrieve elementary sixth-grader Samantha Humphrey, accompanied Billie Crandall Brady from the Oswego County Traffic Safety Board, talks to students at the Fulton school about the importance of wearing your helmet while riding your bike, skate board, scooter or in-line skates. The students were given special smoke free message tattoos and were told that healthy brains are safe brains. All the rules of the road were discussed – riding on the right side and making full and complete stops at stop signs and stop lights. Brady also told everyone about an opportunity to learn to ride on a bike course from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 31 at the Fulton War Memorial. The free event, sponsored by the Fulton Police Department, will feature new helmets from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and refurbished bikes from Doyle’s Bike Shop in Fulton given to children who can’t afford one. The event also will have a tricycle course, pedal cars, bouncy houses, crafts and free lunch.
