Purpose: The Guide is intended to be used as a resource for school boards, school administration, police, parents and engineers to advance the goals of the Safe Routes to School program.
- The focus is on engineering measures that can make the environment around schools safe for children and parents to walk and bicycle to school.
- The guide highlights physical improvements to the school grounds and the transportation infrastructure to improve access and safety and to minimize conflicts with motor vehicles.
- Examples range from simple sidewalk replacement/repair to more complex traffic calming such as speed humps and curb extensions.
- Illustrations of best practices were gathered from school communities across New Jersey.
