We Scream for Ice Cream




In Brimfield Township, Ohio the police are writing tickets to children wearing their helmet. Good for one free ice cream cone from Franks Drive-In, located on SR43. A program that was revived after a ten-year absence.

I hope more community police departments will embrace programs like this on a periodic basis. What could be a more effective way to teach young cyclists best practices then a reward from a police officer in the course of an average day. At the same time this benefits a locally owned business as the child who is ticketed will most likely bring friends and/or family who will also buy ice cream.

This is the precisely the kind of ticket I wish we could all get once in awhile.
