Safety Tips for Children Biking to School

August 24, 2017 - 1 minute read

Here are some great tips to help your children find the safest route to school:

• Choose sidewalks or paths wherever possible, even if that means the trip will take a little longer.

• If there are no sidewalks or paths, walk as far from motor vehicles as possible, on the side of the street facing traffic.

• Minimize the number of street crossings.

• Avoid busy, high-speed or multi-lane roads, wherever possible.

• When available, cross at a location with an adult school crossing guard.

• Look for places where drivers are paying attention, yielding to pedestrians and cyclists and respecting speed limits.

• Use a route that avoids potential problems like loose dogs, the presence of criminal activity, vacant buildings or poorly lit streets.
