WILDWOOD – Scott Chambers, owner of Zippy’s Bike Shop, said when people buy a new bike they should take steps to protect themselves and their bikes.

State law requires bike riders under 17 to wear a helmet, and safety experts recommended all bike riders wear one. State law also requires bikes to be outfitted with a white light in front, a red light in the back, and a sound making device, like a horn or a bell. Chambers said local police have been stopping bike riders without lights. Representatives from the North Wildwood and Wildwood Police Departments confirmed they will stop bike riders without lights, and they are subject to a $46 ticket, but they say they are mainly interested in seeing bike riders at night being safe.
