Students learn road safety for beginning of school year

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Elementary age students got a lesson in bike safety Saturday.

The City of Wilmington hosted the Bradley Creek Safe Routes to School event this morning.  The event was all about teaching kids the safe way to get to and from school on the streets and sidewalks.

Organizers said the event was prompted by the fact that construction is behind on the sidewalks leading towards Bradley Creek Elementary.

They reminded children to always wear a helmet and brightly colored clothes to make it easier for drivers to see you.
