Reports of hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries each year through- <br />out our nation (due to collisions between bicycles and motor vehicles alone) have <br />alerted us to the need for such a Program. By training our boys and girls, at an <br />early age, in proper riding skill, by teaching them the laws governing bicyclists, <br />by explaining the reasons for obeying safety rules and by helping them to be <br />mare of the hazards of biking, we feel that Edina is making a concerted attempt <br />to assure that the number of accidents does NOT keep up with the ever-increasing <br />number of bicyclists. <br />The energy crisis may evert now be creating the need for our adults to use their <br />bicycles as a means of transportation for short haul errands. <br />all to become thoroughly familiar with the "rules of the road" to minimize the <br />incidence of accidents. <br />toy, but a vehicle to be taken seriously. <br />The safety of our children cannot be relegated to a once-a-year campaign. <br />for the support of every parent in carrying out this campaign all year long and <br />I urge every youngster to participate in this Bicycle Safety Program and then to <br />practice what he has learned - for his own safety as well as for the safety of <br />others. <br />BICYCLE SAFETY WEEK PROCLAMATION <br />The growing congestion of <br />It behooves us <br />We should all remember that a bike is no longer just a <br />I call <br />RESPECT FOR LAW WEEK RESOLUTION ADOPTED. <br />lution which was unanimously adopted: <br />WHEREAS, crime and its effect upon the lives and property of our citizens contin- <br />ues undiminish'ed,- despite efforts by government citizens' organizations and many <br />individuals; and <br />WHEREAS, the problems of crime touch and affect all segments of our society, under- <br />mining and eroding the moral and economic strength of our communities and their <br />citizens; and <br />Mayor Courtney read the -following reso- <br />RESPECT FOR LAW WEEK RESOLUTION
