The following is a selection of resources that can be used by parents, school staff, and others to help improve child pedestrian safety.

For Parents and PTAs

For Teachers and School Administrators

  • Let’s Go NC! Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Curriculum — An all-in-one package of lesson plans, materials, activities, and instructional videos from the NC Department of Transportation that encourages children to learn about and practice fundamental skills that build safe habits.
  • Pedestrian Safer Journey — Brief videos  help educators, parents, and others who care about pedestrian safety to get the conversation started with children and youth. Three videos — one for each of three age groups: 5-9, 10-14, and 15-18 — accompanied by a quiz or discussion and an educator’s resource library can be used as an introduction to pedestrian safety skills or to augment a comprehensive curriculum.
  • Walk Across North Carolina Map — Some schools have created programs that encourage students to walk during recess. These programs benefit all students, including those who can’t presently walk to school. You can use this map to track the mileage of individual students or classrooms while learning about important sites across the State of North Carolina.
