Legislator Ford’s Helmet Giveaway a Success

Helmet GiveawayOn Tuesday August 14th, Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford distributed free bicycle helmets to nearly 50 children and adults in Point Lookout.

 

Legislative District 4 and its surrounding communities have the most bicyclists on the streets at any given time in Nassau County. Bicycle safety information, educational materials, and helmets were provided by the New York State Coalition for Transportation Safety.

 

Legislator Ford, who donated more than two dozen helmets to the giveaway, urges her constituents to ride their bikes carefully and responsibly. “I hope that promoting bicycle safety will improve the well-being of our residents, reduce injuries, and save lives!”
