Police Give Out Hundreds Of Free Helmets And Lights

Written by Boston Biker on May 14



Police officials from BU, Boston, and Brookline are teaming up this week to give away hundreds of free helmets to cyclists riding in the Commonwealth Avenue area, to prevent accidents and spread awareness about biking safety.

Boston University Sgt. Larry Cuzzi said Monday afternoon that police officers had handed out nearly 75 helmets that morning. He estimated that they would donate hundreds by Wednesday evening, when the giveaway ends.

These sort of events are just as important as the ticket stings, and I hope they do this more often.

I have been stuck in so much bike traffic lately get your helmets and lights and join us!

    They are giving out free bells, reflective pant-leg straps and t-shirts at the Patagonia store on Newbury.

    the irony is that they’re handing out helmets at one of the most poorly designed intersections in the city. yes – let’s not bother to rethink our infrastructure, but let’s hand out helmets (or even more useless tickets) because somehow it decreases accidents.

    That intersection isn’t even handicap accessible on the inbound side! Unfortunately it under state jurisdiction over the MassPike and desperately needs to be fast tracked for a redesign. This should have been phase II of the BU bridge reconstruction along with the changes/repairs to the Memorial Drive rotary.
