Bike and Traffic Safety classes are provided to all Warren County Public Schools for students in grades 1-4. Bike Safety Rodeos are held for local youth annually and include the distribution of free bicycle helmets to children ages toddler through 16. During these events deputies demonstrate how to properly wear a bike helmet and encourage the children to wear their helmets every time they ride. Statistics show that if a child is involved in a bike accident and is wearing a properly fitted bike helmet, eighty-five to ninety percent of the time a serious head injury and/or brain injury will be prevented.
Traffic safety portion of these events include the recognition of traffic safety signs and stop lights, correct hand signals, importance of safety reflectors, and bike riding laws.
