Back To School Safety

Drive, walk & cycle safely

With school back in session, it’s important for drivers, cyclists, parents and children to slow down, walk or cycle safely, be alert and follow the rules of the road – especially before and after school.

If your child is attending school in person, we encourage walking or cycling to and from school, if possible.

Active school travel makes a difference in our community:

  • Healthier children
  • Less traffic and pollution
  • Safer school zones
  • Better academic performance
