City Receives Pedestrian Safety Grant


PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena’s efforts to help make school zones safer for pedestrians received a financial boost thanks to a $145,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety to the City’s Department of Transportation for its Safer Streets Pasadena–School Area Safety Program. 

The “Safer Streets” program is part of Pasadena’s focus on pedestrian safety and includes classroom outreach to local 3rd grade students.  In addition, this program will update the Suggested Routes to School Maps for the 18 elementary and middle schools in Pasadena.  Students will receive a survey in Spring 2017 to complete with their parents/guardians that will provide the City with important data to update the maps. 

In the past 10 years, Pasadena recorded 55 deaths stemming from traffic collisions, including 14 pedestrian fatalities, 27 percent of the total deaths.  This grant-funded project is one part of a comprehensive work program by the City’s Transportation, Public Works, Public Health and Police departments to address these collision statistics through engineering, education, enforcement, encouragement and evaluation of pedestrian safety in Pasadena. 

Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
