The Safe Routes to School Program participated in the Police Department Open House Event which was held on June 4 where children and parents had an opportunity to learn pedestrian, bicycle, helmet and traffic safety. Children were encouraged to show off their Pedal Power by jumping on a Blender Bike to make delicious fruit smoothies. Traffic safety instructors were on hand to provide important street safety information, such as how to properly and safely ride a bike and how to be a safe pedestrian at all times. Both children and adults were reminded of the rules of the road as well as the health benefits of walking and bicycling, such as promoting a healthier lifestyle, reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality. Adults also completed Pedestrian Safety Surveys in the ongoing effort by the City of Glendale to help everyone be safer drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists.
