Parents urged to carry out bike safety checks
8:00am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
West Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership has urged parents to carry out safety checks for children who cycle to school.
They are advised to get bikes checked over and to practise the route so children are familiar with junctions.
Parents are also advised to ensure children wear helmets and high-visibility jackets as well as having lights fitted to their bikes.
Parents who drive their children to school should keep clear of zigzag road markings near school entrances and show courtesy to other road users
