AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Bicycle riders in Austintown will soon be ticketed, but it’s not for doing anything wrong. It’s for what they are doing right.
Beginning Thursday, June 13, a bicycle safety campaign gets underway in which police officers will be handing out “tickets” to bike riders that they see wearing a helmet.
The officers will have books of “Tasty Citations” that will include a coupon for a free single cake cone at Katie’s Korner Homemade Ice Cream.
The Austintown Optimist Club is sponsoring the campaign.
