Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
Designed to emphasize the concept of the bicycle driver vs. the popular term, bicycle rider, this manual contains guidelines on bicycle safety, addressing itself both to parents and children. The main section topics are: (1) parent responsibility; (2) choosing a bicycle, fitting it to the child, and learning to drive; (3) bicycle equipment, maintenance, and protection from theft; (4) signs, signals, and pavement markings; (5) traffic laws and ordinances; and (6) safety rules and driving hazards. Proper attitudes and skills formulated early in life, it is stressed, will eventually influence future automobile driving habits. The manual is illustrated throughout, and a quiz and bibliography are included at the end. (DS)
