Juveniles that are properly wearing their helmets, obeying the law,
and/or practicing proper safety skills will be "cited" by police
department employees. Letters will be sent to their parents and cited
children will receive a prize. Each child cited will be entered into a
drawing for a new bike (donated by Riverside Optimist Club).
As part of Bicycle Safety Month, the Riverside Police Department presented surprised and excited sixth
grader Anthoney Zavala with a new bicycle and helmet at Ben Franklin Elementary School. Anthoney, 12
years old, received his bicycle in a drawing from all Safety Cite recipients. Anthoney received a Safety
Cite in October 2008 and again in May 2009, for properly wearing a helmet and obeying the rules of the
road while riding his bicycle.
