San Ramon Logo Safe Routes to School

 

Safe travel to and from school sites is a key community traffic safety concern. The mission of the San Ramon Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program is to raise awareness of pedestrian and traffic safety at school sites.  Launched in 1989, the City of San Ramon’s SRTS Program is a collaborative effort between the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, San Ramon Elementary School sites, and the City. The Program educates school site administrators, parents and children about bicycle safety, pedestrian awareness and traffic concerns. The SRTS Program promotes a comprehensive, proactive approach to securing safety along school routes and on school sites.

The key messages for drivers/parents and children about pedestrian and traffic safety are:

  • Drop-off and pick-up children from appropriate locations;
  • Obey 25 mph speed limit in school zones and around school sites;
  • Park legally near school sites and walk children to/from school sites;
  • Children should always cross at designated crosswalks;
  • Do not use cell phones when driving to/from school sites;
  • Parents should always hold the hand of children, especially those under 8 years of age when crossing the street; and
  • Slow down in areas where children are walking to school.

This joint collaboration between the City and Schools has produced an effective program that reaches out to all Elementary school students and promotes bicycle, pedestrian and traffic safety.
