Local councilwoman pushes for bike safety program after two people hit by cars

FRANKFORD, Del. – After two car accidents with bicycles happened in Frankford, one where a child was injured, and another where a man was killed, officials are now pushing to bring a bike safety initiative to the area. Town council president Joanne Bacon took to Facebook earlier this morning to let residents know that she was reaching out to state leaders to make this happen. She tells 47 ABC that she wants to launch this program at the Frankford fall festival so more people will know about it.

“I notice children in town do not wear helmets at all and that’s very sad. That could be tragic in itself if they’re struck by a car. So those are my main reasons and the Envision Frankford reason is to teach bicycle safety,” said said Bacon.

The town’s fall festival will be October 26th where we’re told they are expecting more than 700 people attend.
