New resources to help children bicycle and walk safely
The National Center for Safe Routes to School has released two new bicycling safety resources.
Both of these brochures, as well as links to additional bike safety resources, are available at www.walkbiketoschool.org/keep-going/bike-safety.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a new child transportation safety campaign called Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe! The campaign is a collaboration between NHTSA and Ludorum, the producers of the Chuggington™ television series, which provides tools to help children walk, bicycle, ride school buses, and travel in motor vehicles more safely. The campaign includes child safety tools such as a Traffic Safety Pledge, Activity Book, banner ads and safety tips.
