Now that some Starkville area school children have brand new multi-sport bike helmets, there hopefully will be less traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
Free bike helmets were distributed to kids at Sudduth Elementary School today (Tuesday) compliments of the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services.
The helmet funded by fees and surcharges received on moving traffic violations. DUI citation amount to twenty-five dollars for all other moving vehicle violations. Each child is individually fitted with the proper size helmet at no cost.
