Best of all, biking and walking are fun.

Pedestrians, learn from the Street Smart campaign:

  • Wait for the Walk
  • Use Crosswalks
  • Heads Up, Phones Down

Bikers, follow GMTMA’s advice:

  • Be Seen: A front white light and rear backlight are essential and required.
  • Be Heard: Let others know you’re approaching. Bells are required.
  • Be Right: Ride in the same direction as traffic, as far to the right as practicable.
  • Be Headstrong: It’s always smart to wear a helmet. Under 17, it’s required.

Burn calories, not cash. Today, less than 15% of students walk or bike to school, down from 50% of students in 1969. During this same time period, the number of overweight schoolchildren has risen — now nearly 1 in 5 school-age children are obese.
