Back to School
Back to school means more children walking and biking on our roads. It’s exciting and fun, but there’s one thing that all families should add to their lists as they prepare for back to school – the trip to school.
Now is the perfect time to plan for and practice getting to and from school safely. Whether your children walk, bike, ride the bus, or ride in a car, a little planning and preparation can go a long way towards keeping children safe. Practice and discuss these safety tips as a family and be a great example by always practicing how to travel safely with your child.
Check your route to school, and practise. When possible, choose streets with low traffic volumes, slow speeds, few intersections, good bicycle lanes and good sidewalks with no roadway construction.
