A TEENAGER who remembered to put lights on his bike will be rewarded by police today for remembering safety.

Woodbridge police and Adrian Farthing, proprietor of Pedal Power, will present 15-year-old Phillip Ormston with a new cycle for winning the "Lights Save Lives" cycle campaign draw.

Officers stopped 74 cyclists during Woodbridge police's two-week campaign. Of those, 39 had lights on their bikes. Youngsters with lights were rewarded with entry into the draw for a new bike.

Inspector Trevor Brundle, Woodbridge sector commander, said the campaign had had a positive effect.

"Officers out talking to cyclists reported many were aware of the initiative, thanks to the media coverage, and that there appeared to be more people with lights on their cycles than before.

"We would remind those who continue to ride their bikes without lights that they are putting both themselves and other road users at risk. We take cycle safety seriously and will take action where necessary."
