In the last 30 years we have seen walking and biking to school drop from 42% to 16%. Today, kids, parents and communities are teaming up all over Idaho to reverse this trend, make kids safer and combat the rising obesity epidemic.
It's Healthy - It doesn't pollute the air we breathe - It reduces traffic congestion - It reduces school bus trips - It's good for you and the environment!!
Lately, it seems as though we are experiencing more and more vehicle v. pedestrian/bicyclist accidents. One way to prevent this from happening is to educate everyone on how to be safe and how to follow the rules of the road. By learning to become a safe walker or rider, our children will, in turn, become more conscientious drivers when they are older. Also, it is never to late to learn the rules of the road, so we all become better drivers.
Keep Them Safe!
Please encourage your school or PTA to become involved in the Nampa Safe Routes to School Program so we can help to educate ALL of Nampa's Children.
