In 2018, the Solano Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Program received a Pedestrian Safety Grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to hold workshops in cities across Solano County to work to address the high rate of pedestrian vs. vehicle collisions especially pertaining to youth.
Register to attend the upcoming “Let’s Keep Solano Kids Street Safe” meeting on September 19, 2019.
Find out more about the “Let’s Keep Solano Kids Street Safe” Toolkit for schools and agencies. Educate drivers and pedestrians about safe practices behind the wheel and on foot.
On February 6, 2019 the SR2S Program in partnership with OTS, Solano County Public Health, and the City of Fairfield hosted a Countywide Pedestrian Safety Symposium. Participants listened to a personal story of the loss of a loved one while riding his bicycle, a presentation of the data for pedestrian vs. vehicle collisions and how it coincides with public health data of low income areas, locations with high rates of diabetes, and health inequities.
