The Johnston Police Department will be on the lookout for kids in the community practicing good bicycle safety habits.
If an officer sees kids practicing good habits, they will get "Busted in a Good Way." This is undoubtedly the kind of ticket you want to get because it earns you free ice cream at Van Dee’s Ice Cream Shoppe.
Good habits that will earn a free ice cream ticket:
- Wearing a helmet
- Looking both ways before crossing the street
- Using hand signals when turning
- Being awesome - because after all, safety is important!
Every child who gets "caught" will be issued a ticket for a free ice cream cone at Van Dee’s on Merle Hay Road. Each ticket turned into Van Dee’s enters the child into a raffle for a free bike at the end of the summer. Practice good bicycle and seat belt safety, and get "Busted in a Good Way" in Johnston!
