Be Visible

Being visible is an important part of being a safe pedestrian! Watch this video from Australia’s Science Channel. Then, create and decorate a reflective vest using a yellow highlighter to indicate the reflective strips.

Take It Outside!Go outside into your yard or driveway at night with a flashlight. Shine a light on different items that may have a reflector, reflective tape or lettering. (street signs, mailbox numbers, your bicycle, stop for pedestrian signs, etc.) You can see for yourself reflective materials help you to be visible and increase safety.

Infrastructure projects include the planning, design, and construction or installation of sidewalks, crosswalks, signals, traffic-calming, and bicycle facilities. County and municipal governments, school districts, schools, and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply to the program.

The federal-aid provides federal-aid highway funds to State Departments of Transportation. The main objectives of the program are:

  • to enable and encourage children in grades K-8, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school;
  • to make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age; and,
  • to facilitate the planning, development and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution in the vicinity of schools.
