The mission of Marin's Safe Routes to Schools program is to increase the number of children walking and biking to school. The initiative integrates health, fitness, traffic relief, environmental awareness, and safety all under one program.
These resources from the National Center for Safe Routes to School offer helpful guidelines for educating parents, teachers, and children on safe ways to walk and bike to school: Pedestrian Tip Sheets and Bicycle Safety Resources.
Provides a national clearinghouse for information about health and safety, engineering, advocacy, education, enforcement, access, and mobility for pedestrians (including transit users) and bicyclists.
Developed by the Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC), the Share the Road campaign reviews the need for mutual respect and understanding between cyclists and motorists as well as their shared rights and responsibilities on public roads.
Bicycle riding is fun, healthy, and a great way to be independent. But it is important to remember that a bicycle is not a toy; it’s a vehicle! Be cool, and follow these basic safety tips from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
