Youth

Youth and teens are often overlooked in educational materials that address pedestrian behaviors, as most in-school educational programs are targeted at elementary school-aged children. However, it is important to educate young people as well, since they are a group that cannot yet drive, and they rely on public and non-motorized modes of transportation. For this age group, the way the message is delivered is often as important as the message itself, so educational materials should be technologically driven and visually interesting. Topics that may be addressed with youth include safe walking habits (i.e., using crosswalks, waiting for signals, dressing in visible clothing at night) and navigational techniques for getting to destinations via walking and/or transit.
