Bike Safety

Bike Rodeo 2

It’s never too early to learn basic safety rules, and Volvo Trucks helped deliver that message to school children in Greensboro, NC, recently.

Volvo paid the cost of purchasing 100 new bike helmets, including 36 distributed at a bike rodeo at Greensboro’s Hunter Elementary School. SAFE Guilford, a local coalition that promotes safety for people of all ages, sponsored the event.

Nationwide, 1,000 children are treated every day in emergency rooms for injuries received within a mile of their house. Rodeos like the one at Hunter Elementary emphasize the importance of wearing a helmet every time you get on a bike – no exceptions.
