Village of River Forest Ordinance 9-4-8 requires that every child under 16 wear a protective helmet when riding a bicycle. Penalties include ticketing, attending a bicycle safety education program and public service. However, our police officers cannot and should not be alone in enforcing this ordinance. We encourage all parents to check out the document HERE (scroll to the bottom of the page for “Bike Helmet Safety Tips”) on how to make sure your child’s (and your own!) helmet fits right.
