When riding a bicycle to school or in their neighborhood, children should follow these safety rules:
Choose a safe cycling route to school. Stay away from high traffic routes and fast-moving vehicles. Watch for other vehicles sharing the roadway.
Wear a helmet every time you ride your bike. Wear bright, reflective clothing that will help others see you in the roadway or on the sidewalk.
Always obey the same traffic laws as other vehicles do when traveling on a roadway. Travel with the flow of traffic when traveling on a roadway and always use the proper hand signals to indicate turns and stops.
When riding through an intersection, look left, right, and left again and only continue through when it is safe to do so.
When riding on the sidewalk, yield to pedestrian and always be careful when riding near other children.
Don't ride a bicycle after dark unless it is equipped with an adequate lighting system that can be seen by other vehicles.
