FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 05, 2017
The City of West Kelowna Bylaw Enforcement Officers will be keeping an eye out this summer for young cyclists and have rewards in store for those caught doing it right.
Thanks to an initiative of BrainTrust Canada, Bylaw Officers have been provided helmet coupons for youth who may need a helmet and treat tickets to reward those doing the right thing such as wearing a helmet correctly or walking their bike across the street.
The plan is to get every cyclist on board with the importance of bike helmets and road safety.
BrainTrust Canada focuses on preventable brain injury and providing support services for those affected by brain injury.
Our Bylaw Officers, who conduct bicycle patrols throughout the community during summer months, look forward to rewarding young cyclists in West Kelowna.
