Oregon’s Helmet Law

Oregon law requires youth 16 years of age and younger to wear safety helmets when riding on skateboards, scooters, and in-line skates in public places. Public places include, but are not limited to, streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and skate parks. Failure to wear protective headgear is a traffic violation, which carriers a fine of $25 for each offense.  Make sure that bike helmets are fitted properly, and please remind your children to obey all traffic laws.

ü Use hand signals before   

    making a turn.

ü Ride single file on the right

    side of the road.

ü Look left, right, left before

    entering the road.

ü Obey stop signs and traffic



Never let children wear audio headphones while riding bikes.  It makes it much harder to hear approaching cars.
