A young boy was hit by a pickup truck while riding his bicycle according to the Idaho Falls Police department. The bicycle accident occurred when a pickup truck was turning left onto 14th street from Holmes in Idaho Falls. Police say the boy was sent to a nearby medical center for evaluation of injuries. The following are some bicycle riding tips for young children.
Bicycle Riding Tips for Young Children
Riding in the street is the safest place for a bicyclist. However, children under the age of 10 are better off riding on the sidewalk. Children under 10 are not mature enough to make difficult decisions necessary to safely ride in the street. The following are some tips to teach children so they can avoid a bicycle accident.
- Watch for vehicles coming out or turning into driveways.
- Stop at corners of sidewalks and streets to look for cars.
- Before crossing a street, make eye contact for any drivers who may stop for you.
- Always enter a street at a corner not between parked cars.
- Alert pedestrians on the sidewalk that you are near by saying, “Excuse me,” or “Passing on your left.” You could also use a bell or horn to alert others.
- Always wear a bicycle helmet that fits properly.
- Check the equipment of your bicycle. Be sure the tires are properly inflated; the brakes are working and your bike seat is adjusted correctly for comfort.
