The Pflugerville Police Department’s summer safety campaign "Cool Moves" takes place in the summer, encouraging our city’s youth to be safe while outdoors.
Children "caught" practicing safety by a Pflugerville Police Officer will be given a ticket, not the kind of ticket that Mom & Dad are used to receiving, but a ticket thanking the youth for being safe. Attached to this ticket will be a coupon for free ice cream redeemable at one of our local participating restaurants.
Each summer Pflugerville Officers give out over 500 tickets for free ice cream to safety-conscious children.
Examples of “Cool Moves” are:
- Wearing a helmet while riding a bike, scooter, skateboard or rollerblades
- Crossing at a crosswalk
- Obeying traffic laws and using correct hand signals while riding a bike
- Stopping at the curb to look both ways before crossing the street
