Community-Based Strategies

Representatives of communities can improve safety behaviors in many ways. Older youth can become safety patrol members and help younger students get to and from schools. Adults can become crossing guards to enforce safe behaviors at crossings. Neighborhood speed watch programs can provide opportunities for residents to educate drivers about their driving speeds while making drivers aware that the neighborhood is concerned about safety. All adults in a community need to set good examples for their children and others by crossing streets in crosswalks when they are available and following other traffic rules.

Types of community-based strategies include:

Community Monitoring
Reminders to Clear Sidewalk
Pace Car Program
Anti-Drug Patrols
