Kids practice bike safety

BREWER - Kids buckled up their helmets at the Walmart in Brewer to celebrate safety month at the Bike Safety Rodeo.

Walmart and Holden Patrol Officers teamed up to teach children the basics of bike safety showing that rules of the road are not just for cars.

 

"A lot of kids don't know there are signs for stop, left hand and right hand turn," said Patrol Officer Bruce Graybill, "A lot of kids don't know to ride in the same directions as vehicles are traveling. So, just getting them aware of that is just huge."

 

Though bike riding is fun, everyone should remember that safety comes first.
