FDL Police Dept. 'Law of the Month': Bicycle Violations

May is National Bike Month.

The Fond du Lac Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind the citizens of Fond du Lac about the importance of bicycle safety and following the rules of the road. For the month of May the Police Department will be concentrating their enforcement efforts on bicycle violations as the law of the month.

It is our goal that with education and enforcement we can reduce the amount of accidents due to violations of current bicycle laws and ordinances throughout the city. It cannot be stressed enough that bicycle safety and education should start at home.

? May 13-17: National Bike to Work Week

In addition, the Police Department does put on a number of "bicycle safety rodeos" at schools throughout the year to assist in educating young riders.

Bicycle safety is important for riders of all ages and all bicycle riders are encouraged to wear a proper-fitting helmet. Through education and enforcement of bicycle safety, we are making Fond du Lac a safe place to live, learn, work, and play.
