Safety Sue, the bike safety puppet, operated by Fairgrieve sixth grader Samantha Humphrey, accompanied Billie Crandall Brady from the Oswego County Traffic Safety Board to talk to Fairgrieve students about the importance of wearing your helmet while riding your bike, skate board, scooter or in-line skates.
The students were given special smoke free message tattoos and were told that healthy brains are safe brains.
All the rules of the road were discussed – riding on the right side and making full and complete stops at stop signs and stop lights.
Brady then told everyone about an exciting opportunity to learn to ride on a bike course at the Fulton War Memorial on May 31 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., sponsored by the Fulton Police Department.
The event is free and will feature new helmets from Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and refurbished bikes, from Doyle’s Bike Shop, as well as a tricycle course, pedal cars, bouncy houses, crafts and free lunch.
