Our Safe Routes to School Program drew a crowd at the 15th Annual Cesar Chavez Celebration this past Saturday, March 26, at the Pacific Community Center.  Children and parents had fun while learning life-saving lessons about pedestrian, bicycle, helmet and traffic safety. Participants enjoyed making smoothies on a Blender Bike demonstrating pedal power and played safety games for a chance to win a new helmet. Mr. Stop Sign and Ms. Railroad Crossing Sign were on hand to take photos with event participants.

Our partners from Safe Moves, the leading authority in traffic safety education in the country, brought along safety instructors who shared important street safety information with attendees including the health benefits of using alternative modes of transportation which also relieve road congestion and reduce emissions. Both children and adults were reminded of the rules of the road to be safer while walking, riding and rolling!

Get Involved – Adults completed Pedestrian Safety Surveys in the ongoing effort by the City of Glendale to help our community be safe drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. If you’re interested in helping improve safety throughout the City, you can start by completing this 5-minute survey.

Next Stop – Look for us at  Earth Day 2016 on April 30 in Central Park.
