When the Sidewalk Stompers can demonstrate that almost 200 student pedestrians are using the roads and sidewalks around a school like Roosevelt, Tampa listens!
Here are some examples of a successful collaboration between our school walking programs and the City of Tampa traffic safety:
New crosswalks and updated crosswalks along key school walking routes. New striping turns this into a No Passing Zone!
New school crossing reminders painted in the street and new signage to make the area more visible.
New striping outside a neighborhood park that serves as the first "bus stop" for a Walking School Bus. Slow down! No passing!
