Giving Lawyers a GOOD Name

Back in May a great story came out of Michigan.

The Michigan Trial Lawyers Association held its seventh annual Helmet Safety Campaign across the state of Michigan on Saturday, promoting helmet and bike safety to kids and adults alike.

Lansing was one of 12 cities in Michigan that hosted this event. This is the fourth year the event was held in Lansing — this year's event took place at the Lansing Fire Station — and according to Teri Guiffes, the event's coordinator, the public's interest in it has grown every year.

"This is the biggest it's been, and it just keeps getting bigger," Guiffes said.

The days events included raffles giving away new bikes and police and firemen talking about the importance of helmet safety. Helmets also were fitted and given to kids and adults of all ages.

"It's one thing to promote helmet safety; it's a completely different thing to say here's a helmet as well," said Hondo Carpenter, one of the event's spokesmen.
