LARGO – The Largo Police Department and Clearwater accident attorney and bicycle safety advocate Jim Dodson will celebrate National Bike to School Day Wednesday, May 7, by biking from Publix at 857 W. Bay Drive to Mildred Helms Elementary School.

The students will meet at the Publix at 7:30 a.m. Dodson will provide each participant with a healthy breakfast. A specialist from Chainwheel Drive will inspect each bicycle for safety, and a certified helmet specialist from Jim Dodson Law will fit students’ helmets.

Then the students will ride their bicycles to the elementary school, about half a mile south. Largo police will provide traffic enforcement to ensure each participant arrives safely to their destination by 8:30 a.m.

“We will be giving away free bicycle headlights and taillights to the students who don’t have them on their bike or who need a new one,” said Sergeant George Edmiston, Largo’s traffic enforcement officer.

The League of American Bicyclists created national Bike to School Day in May 2012 in order to teach children bicycling safety. Each year about 1,000 schools in 49 states celebrate the day, which kicks off National Bike Safety Month.

“Florida is one of the most dangerous states for bicycling safety. It’s critically important for children to know and understand how to ride their bicycle safely, and why it’s so important for them to wear a bike helmet whenever they ride. We want every child to experience the thrill of riding a bike and doing it safely,” said Dodson.

Parents are welcomed to attend. For more information on the event, call Kati at 446-0840 or email kati@jwdodsonlaw.com.
