Safe Routes to School Program



The Kettering Safety Section provides information on developing safe ways of getting to school.  This information can be used in the community to help children safely navigate their neighborhood. Also, It can be used by teachers as classroom resources. Safety Section members are committed to working  pro-actively with school and neighborhood communities to achieve the following outcomes:

1. Enable and encourage children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school.

2. Make bicycling and walking to school a safe transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.

3. Facilitate in 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.
