Dinolfo, O'Flynn, Delta Sonic To Host Summer Safety Events

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn and representatives from Delta Sonic announced that the Monroe County Office of Traffic Safety and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office will partner with Delta Sonic to host summer traffic safety events throughout the community. These events include bike rodeos aimed at promoting bicycle safety and child safety seat checks, which offer inspections of child car seats.

“Monroe County is proud to partner with Delta Sonic to offer complimentary summer safety events for local families,” said Dinolfo. “During the summer season more residents are on the road and we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone can enjoy their summer in a safe and responsible manner. By bringing these important safety events to convenient locations throughout the County, we provide more families with traffic safety tips to prevent injuries to children in our community.”

Research has shown that over 40% of bicyclists who are hospitalized as a result of a collision have some level of traumatic brain injury, a risk that can be mitigated by wearing a helmet. The bike rodeos will allow families the opportunity to learn proper riding techniques, receive safety tips and enjoy free giveaways, face painting and more. The first 50 kids receive a complimentary bicycle helmet.

The following bike rodeos will be hosted at Delta Sonic locations, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.:
· Saturday, 7/15 – Rochester (718 East Main Street)
· Saturday, 7/29 – Henrietta (2970 West Henrietta Road)

"Studies have shown that nearly half of all child safety seats are installed incorrectly which can lead to serious injuries or even death", said O'Flynn. "I encourage everyone to take advantage of these summer safety events and have one of our certified technicians demonstrate how to properly install your child safety seat."

Free child safety seat checks will feature experts from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the Office of Traffic Safety inspecting individual car seats to ensure proper usage and safe technique. These inspections are great for families with young children still using car seats. The best car seat is one that fits the child well, fits the vehicle correctly and is easy to use – ensuring consistent usage. Every inspection will also receive a complementary car wash, courtesy of Delta Sonic.

The following child safety seat checks will be hosted at Delta Sonic locations from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.:
· Saturday, 8/26 – Greece (990 West Ridge Road)
· Saturday, 9/23 – Henrietta (2970 West Henrietta Road)

“Delta Sonic is happy to partner with Monroe County in hosting the Bike Rodeos and child safety seat checks this summer,” said Kim Allen Canna, Marketing Director for Delta Sonic. “We are proud to be members of the Rochester community and want to make the events both educational and fun for the children.”

These safety events provide an outstanding resource for families and bring services closer to home for residents all over Monroe County.
