The Indiana Bicycle Lawyers of Caress Law Group are proud to announce that the City of Frankfort will be hosting Bicycle Safety Day tomorrow, April 20, 2013. It is clear that the Frankfort Police, who are the ones who consistently witness the harm and injuries caused by bicycle accidents, are looking out for the safety of Indiana cyclists and have decided to host this event to educate citizens on bicycle safety. This event will start at 9 a.m. at the Frankfort Police Department at 201 West Washington Street. The hosts of this event will be providing attendees with easy to understand handouts touching on bicycle laws in Indiana as well as relevant Frank city ordinances.
Bicycle Safety Day will consist of a classroom session put on by the Frankfort Police Department followed by an opportunity for questions and answers. There will then be cones set up in the parking lot for residents to practice the Indiana bicycle safety tips they learned in the lecture. The event is free to the public and will combine an information session with practical “hands on” exercises.
The bicycle accident lawyers at Caress Law Group salute the City of Frankfort for prioritizing bicycle safety and communicating these messages to its citizens. Over the years, we have seen bicycle traffic increase throughout Indianapolis and the rest of Indiana. As bicycle riders ourselves, this has led to great opportunities and, we believe, a healthier, more enjoyable community. However, with increased bicycle traffic comes increased bicycle accidents and injuries as a result. That is why it is so important, as cyclists and operators of motor vehicles alike, to educate yourself on the rules that come along with “sharing the road” in Indiana. Events like Bicycle Safety Day in Frankfort act as an effective way to begin educating the community on the importance of bicycle safety.
Also available at Bicycle Safety Day will be a license tag that can be attached to your bike for only $2. The Frankfort Police are particularly supportive of this because, if the bike is stolen or lost, the serial number on the license tag will be used by police to track down the lost or stolen bicycle. Our Indiana bicycle attorneys also offer our free Indiana Flag sticker or patch free of charge to anyone who requests one by clicking here.
