Sweet treats for bike safety
CLIFTON PARK -- Kids in Saratoga and Schenectady Counties have an added incentive this year to wear a bike helmet - free ice cream.
Assemblyman Jim Tedisco is partnering with 12 local police departments to give out "tickets' for free ice cream to reward children who wear their helmets while bicycling, skateboarding and rollerblading. They are also handing out free bike helmets to kids who need them.
The Safe Summer Program is made possible thanks to donations from participating businesses, including Stewart's Shops, Friendly's, Hayner's Ice Cream Hall of Fame in Halfmoon and Ben and Jerry's.
