Bicycle Helmets

With the nicer weather, I've observed more children riding their bicycles (and battery motorcycle) in the roadway with out helmets.

As a reminder to you (parents) for the safety of your children, here is the current Puyallup ordinance requiring helmets be worn:

 10.62.030 Bicycle helmet required.

   (1) Any person bicycling or riding as a bicycle passenger on or in tow of a bicycle upon any public area in the city of Puyallup shall wear an approved bicycle helmet designed for safety that meets or exceeds the standards adopted in PMC 10.62.020(3), and shall have either the neck or chin strap of the helmet fastened securely while the bicycle is in motion.

    (2) No person shall transport another person on or in tow of a bicycle upon any public area in the jurisdiction of the city of Puyallup, unless the passenger is wearing a helmet that meets the requirements of this chapter.

    (3) A parent or guardian is responsible for requiring that a child under the age of 18 years wears an approved bicycle helmet while bicycling or riding as a passenger on a bicycle in any public area in the city of Puyallup, and has the neck or chin strap of the helmet fastened securely. (Ord. 2403 2, 1994).

    I encourage all parents to observe this ordinance.
