Bicycle Helmet Law

4 Apr

Wearing a bike helmet in Ontario is compulsory for those under the age of 18. That means anyone under the age of 18 who rides any type of bicycle on Ontario roads, such as a tricycle, a bike, a tandem, or in a children’s bicycle seat, must wear an approved bicycle helmet.Apr 15, 2011  helmet in Ontario

With the spring weather we see more students riding their bikes to school. Parents of children under the age of 16 are responsible to ensure their child has a proper helmet and most importantly, wears it! As well, cellphones are not only dangerous distraction when driving, they are equally as dangerous when riding a bike! Please address this issue with your child.
