Summer is Here!
With summer vacation in full swing the Safe Routes to School program wants to share some tips. Schools are out for the summer and that means more children are out and about around town. Be sure to watch out for skateboards and bicyclists as you are driving.
FOR KIDS AROUND TOWN:
Always wear your bike helmet when riding anything with wheels, such as a bike, scooter, and roller blades.
Before you ride use the ABC Safety Check:
AIR-make sure your tires are inflated properly
BRAKES-make sure your brakes work
CHAIN-Check to make sure your chain is on tight
If you are out biking at night, do not forget your bike light.
Look both ways when crossing the street, whether on foot or wheels.
If your bike needs a little TLC visit us at the Fairfield City Library at the Civic Center on Saturday, August 1st from 10am-1pm. Bring your bike for a tune-up from the Bay Area Bike Mobile. We are offering FREE bike repair and other Safe Routes to School program information.
