Best Practices to Remember
Skates and Skateboards...
Bike safety tips are useful when you use skates or a skateboard too!
- Ride on sidewalks, not in traffic.
- Do not ride through crosswalks. Carry your skateboard in your hand so you do not startle other pedestrians and so you don't fall in the roadway.
- Never hang onto a moving vehicle when on your bike, skates, or skateboard.
- Oh yeah! Always wear a bicycle helmet!
The Phoenix Police Department offers bicycle rodeos, a program that teaches children proper care and use of a bicycle. To schedule a rodeo, contact the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Coordinator at 602-534-0815.
