Reiman, the Carteret Police Department, and Keep Middlesex Moving offered a free Community Bike Safety Workshop at the Deverin Community Center on Wednesday, July 10th. Over 400 free bike helmets were given out, courtesy of the Carteret Business Partnership, and the kids who attended learned valuable information on how to stay safe while riding their bicycles.

“Many children in Carteret get around on bicycles,” said Mayor Reiman. “Naturally, it’s important for our kids to know how to safely share our roadways with motorists and be equipped with helmets to prevent avoidable injuries.”

The number of bicycle incident deaths increased 29% from 793 in 2010 to 1,024 in 2017, according to the National Safety Council. Of the 1,024 bicyclist deaths in 2017, 679 involved motor vehicles.

Cyclists are encouraged to practice the following safety tips to avoid injury:

  • Get acquainted with traffic laws; bicyclists must follow the same rules as motorists
  • Ride single-file in the direction of traffic
  • Remain alert, keep your head up and look around; watch for opening car doors and other hazards
  • Use hand signals when turning and use extra care at intersections
  • Never hitch onto cars
  • Before entering traffic, stop and look left, right, left again and over your shoulder
