Q: What is Safe Routes to School and Vision Zero?
Safe Routes to School is an international movement that has taken hold in communities throughout the United States. The concept is to increase the number of children who walk or bicycle to school by funding projects that remove the barriers that currently prevent them from doing so. For more information about starting your Safe Routes to School program visit the Florida Department of Transportation.
Here in Hillsborough County, a “Vision Zero” goal resolution has been adopted by the Tampa City Council, Hillsborough County Commission, Temple Terrace City Council, and by the School Board of Hillsborough County. For more information, please visit Vision Zero.
