-

As part of a community education and safety awareness campaign, the Naperville Police Department has partnered with the local McDonald’s merchants to help promote bicycle safety throughout the community.

From June through September 1, 2014, Naperville Police officers can reward bicyclists for demonstrating good bike safety practices by providing the bicyclist with a coupon for a free Ice Cream Cone redeemable at participating McDonald’s. The purpose of this incentive program, initiated by the Naperville Police Department, is to encourage all bicyclists to always wear a helmet, obey all traffic laws, lock up bikes when not in use, and be visible and predictable. Additional bike safety rules are printed on the back of the coupon as another reminder to stay safe.

The Naperville Police Department also encourages bicyclists to register their bikes in case of loss or theft. Bike registrations are accepted at the Naperville Police Department, 1350 Aurora Ave. during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 7AM – 8PM. There is a one dollar registration fee and registration forms are found on the City of Naperville’s website at www.naperville.il.us/protectyourbike.aspx.

For more information on bike safety and security, bicycle registration, and suggested locking devices, contact the School Resource Unit at (630) 420-6731 or visit the City of Naperville’s Website at www.naperville.il.us/protectyourbike.aspx.
