Bexley city officials are expected to impose a new law next week that would fine parents if their children are riding a bicycle in Bexley without a helmet, but not all officials agree they should intervene.

The city proposed an amendment last month to its bicycle and motorcycle laws that would require children under 16 to wear a helmet while operating a bicycle on a city street, sidewalk or alley.
