Chemung Law enforcement

Way 2 Lo

A sweet reminder 
Kids, wear your helmets! Law enforcement in Chemung County, New York, saw that some of their community's little cyclists weren't protecting their precious melons, so they decided to sweeten the lesson. All summer long, police and sheriff's deputies are ticketing kids who wear helmets ? but the "tickets" are for free ice cream. A local bicycle league and scoop shops across town have helped spread the initiative. Kent Goben of the Southern Tier Bicycle League said the initiative definitely works. "There's nothing like seeing the kids do a mad dash on their bicycles to get over (to the officers) and get the coupons," he told CNN. With their helmets on, of course.
