Operation Safe Summer
Bordentown City and Bordentown Township Police will issue ice cream “tickets” in order to promote bike helmet safety. Every year individuals are killed or seriously injured while riding their bicycles. According to the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety, head injury is the most serious injury and most common cause of death among bicyclists.

In New Jersey anyone under the age of 17 is required to wear an approved helmet when cycling, roller-skating or skateboarding. Injuries can happen anywhere, including parks, bike paths and driveways so anyone and everyone riding a bicycle should wear a helmet.

In order to promote safe riding, both the Bordentown City and Bordentown Township Police Departments have partnered with local ice cream shops and officers will issue tickets” for a free ice cream treat to children observed wearing their helmets while riding bicycles, scooters, skateboards, etc. City Officers will be handing out tickets that can be redeemed at Vincent’s Homemade Ice Cream and Township Officers will be handing out tickets that can be redeemed at the Bordentown Creamery. The program will run until the end of the summer.

Bordentown City Chief Fred Miller and Bordentown Township Chief Brian Pesce hope this program will encourage kids to wear helmets to prevent traumatic brain injuries and be a positive way for local youths to interact with their local police.
