The California

Model

  • California has one of the highest child pedestrian fatality rates in the United States. Being hit by a car while walking is the second leading cause of death for kids aged 5 to 12 in California.
  • The Safe Routes to School bill would designate a portion of federal transportation safety funding towards a program that would allow local governments to access funds to improve school area safety.
  • The Bill was supported by a broad coalition of interests, from transportation safety to environmental and social justice, education and child welfare advocates.
