Safe Rollin'

For Skateboarders:

  • Always wear a multi-sport helmet (just a bike helmet isn’t safe) and proper protective gear.

  • Learn to fall — practice on grass or a soft surface

  • Never ride in the street

  • Check your board each time you ride for safety

For Bike Riders:

  • Always wear a properly fitted helmet each time you ride.

  • Wear bright clothes and reflectors so you can be seen by drivers.

  • Wear proper footwear — no sandals, high-heeled shoes or cleats when biking

  • No riding barefoot

  • Follow the rules of the road when you ride and use arm signals when you turn

  • Check over your bike before you ride

For Skate Shoes (aka Roller Shoes):

  • Never “roll” faster than you can walk

  • Avoid rolling on roads, sidewalks and wet surfaces

  • Do not roll over rocks, sand or water

  • Always wear protective gear — such as a helmet and wrist, elbow and knee pads — when using skate shoes

  • Like other sports, there is a learning curve, so learn to roll safely and properly
