Bicycle Safety Day has always been a fun activity for children but every day should be Bicycle Safety Day in the eyes and hearts of our Skokie Police. I'm hoping the Skokie Police will enforce the helmet law for children, if the law is still on the books. 75% of the children in my neighborhood do not ride bicycles with helmets. This is a slippery slope. If children don't think they have to follow a Skokie law, what laws will they feel comfortable breaking when they are older?
