The City of Santa Clarita considers pedestrian safety to be very important. Studies have shown that school-age pedestrians are the group at greatest risk of being involved in pedestrian-related accidents. In order to minimize that risk, the City has prepared a set of maps to help educate elementary school children on how to reach school as safely as possible. The specific information provided in the City's "Suggested Route to School" program relates to safe pedestrian habits and explains how the City provides adult crossing guards. A map for each elementary school within the school district showing the suggested routes to school from the surrounding residential homes has also been developed. The routes are designed to take advantage of adult crossing guards, stop signs, and traffic signals.
