The two best protections when biking to and from school are a properly fitted bicycle helmet and a good grasp of traffic safety rules. Let your child choose the helmet, and explain it's "just part of the gear," like football, skiing or hockey equipment.
The "Take it to the Track" program has been created by the Colorado State Patrol and Bandimere Speedway to provide a positive alternative to illegal street racing - providing a controlled, safe, and fun drag racing program available to all Colorado drivers. This popular program runs April through October. This is the best time for practice, racing your friends, vehicle adjustments, or just to have FUN.
The Colorado State Patrol has gift lanyards available to the public that may be used for $5 off you entry as either a Racer or Spectator at all 2015 CSP "Take it to the Track" Test Nights.

This mobilization is created to crackdown on violators 24-7, but a strong enforcement effort is urged between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. due to the significant number of violators and fatal crashes during this time.
355 Traffic Deaths this Year
120 Were Unbuckled. Buckle Up And Live!
