Police officers teaching kids about traffic safety

BANGOR - People use the expression "it's like riding a bike," but knowing the laws of the road is just that. Once you learn them, its hard to forget.

Police officers from Brewer and Holden gave up their morning to teach kids about traffic and bike safety at Walmart.

 

An obstacle course was set up for children to ride bikes.

 

The course was made to teach kids about what to do at turns, stop signs, and other traffic obstacles.

 

Holden police officer Bruce Graybill said, "Big message is bike safety. Be aware of the rules of the road. Make sure that they do need to obey the same laws that vehicles need to obey."

 

Two bikes were given away at the end of the rodeo.

 

With this being their second year, it is hoped that the bike rodeo will become an annual event.
