Carlsbad CA— Just in time for the busy holiday weekend, the City of Carlsbad Police Department is asking parents and caregivers of kids with e-bikes to attend a virtual workshop to learn about important rules and safety guidelines to reinforce with their young riders.
In response to safety concerns raised by community members, officers have stepped up education and enforcement on e-bike issues in recent months. They need parents and caregivers to help reinforce this information at home. If you are a parent or guardian, police are asking that you join them to learn how you and your e-bike riders can safely and legally share the road.
E-bike safety and laws webinar
Thursday, July 1, 6 to 7 p.m.
The Police Department will be sharing important information, including:
- What’s legal and what’s not when it comes to e-bikes
- Your responsibility as the parent or legal guardian of an e-bike rider
- Tips for keeping kids safe and their driving records clean
- Why the Police Department and parents need to work as a team to keep our community safe
The city has also prepared general information about e-bike safety and laws on its website. For those interested in but unable to attend the webinar, it will be recorded and posted on the city’s website following the event.
