>>> LOUDOUN TO REQUIRE HELMETS FOR CHILDREN 14 AND UNDER?

I voted no to put this up for a public hearing. 4 Supervisors voted no to put it on a public hearing agenda. Five voted yes. So it will be heard Tuesday, July 10 as item one on the public hearing agenda. Item one is a proposed ordinance for "Use of Protective Helmet While Operating a Bicycle or Similar Motorized Device" for " all persons aged 14 years and younger.

This means your children will be required by law to wear a helmet when riding a bike. Our more urban neighbors, Alexandria, Fairfax, Arlington, and Prince William have this law on the books. Faquier and Henrico do not. Do you want helmets required by law for children 14 and under or do you want to make that decision yourself?

At the November 20, 2006 committee meeting of the board that considered this Public Hearing item, the Sheriff raised some concern about implementing this ordinace since it targets minors. The Sheriff believed that a targeted educational effort was a better approach than levying fines. Subsequent to that time the Sheriff has expressed concerns about the financial and regulatory burden this places on deputies doing traffic control or investigating complaints of a more serious nature.

Item one will be considered at 6:30 p.m. along with public comments on this item if you wish to comment. You can write bos@loudoun.gov also to weigh in. Due to the controversial nature of this topic, it may be referred to a business meeting later so you have more than a day to send a message.
