Memorial Day is the traditional beginning of summertime activities. Summer is the time when children are out on their bikes in big numbers — on their way to friends’ houses, the neighbourhood pool, running errands for parents.

The website provides information on the laws affecting walkers, bikers and motor vehicle drivers.
Also, there is no statewide bicycle helmet law although localities can pass their own ordinances.
