October is Pedestrian Safety Month

Walk and bike to school events emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity and encouraging healthy lifestyles among children; address bicycle and pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, and concern for preserving the environment; and build connections between families, schools, and the community.

October is Pedestrian Safety Month! The goal is to increase awareness around pedestrian safety and remind drivers to watch for pedestrians each and every time they are behind the wheel.

See below for ideas and information on how to safely hold walk and bike to school events during the month of October.
