    My name is Sergeant Alan Cyr of the Upton Police Department. I would like to use this opportunity to ask parents to ensure that their children ride their bicycles safely. While on patrol, I have seen many children riding bicycles without helmets; they are required by law to wear them. Many ride in the evening without required lights or reflectors. Upton has seen bicycle related tragedies to include serious head injuries suffered by bicycling children. Thanks.
