Safe Routes to School
The Maricopa County Department of Public Health's Safe Routes to School Program focuses on the safety of children who are going to and from school. This program examines environmental conditions around schools (i.e. sidewalks and safe neighborhoods), conducts projects and activities that improves bike safety and pedestrian safety, aids in the reduction of traffic and air pollution, and also helps to increase physical activity for young children. The SRTS program holds many events throughout the school year that aim to promote safe walking and bicycling conditions. For more information, contact Zoraida Ettrick or visit the website.
