Ice cream cones for helmet-wearers

The Juneau Police Department, along with the Alaska Highway Safety Planning Agency and McDonald's, are encouraging children to wear helmets by offering a strong incentive: ice cream.

If an officer stops a child while he or she is on a bicycle, skateboard, rollerblades or scooter and the boy or girl is wearing a helmet, the child will receive a McDonald's Coupon for a free ice cream cone.
