Vista Launches Pedestrian Safety Program
The City of Vista, in partnership with Circulate San Diego and the Vista Unified School District, launched a Pedestrian Safety Outreach Program to increase pedestrian education for elementary-aged children and older adults. The program aims to increase pedestrian safety and raise awareness about how the public can become more active in promoting safety for pedestrians and motorists alike. The program will be piloted in four elementary schools: Maryland, Bobier, Beaumont, and Monte Vista. School safety assemblies, simulation street courses, pop-up safety awareness events, focus groups, and safety clinics will be included in the educational activities. Funding for the program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
