Navigating Neighborhoods was developed by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance with funding from the Oregon Safe Routes to School Program. The five lessons introduce safe pedestrian behaviors including getting eye contact with drivers, making sure drivers come to a full stop, where to cross, understanding road signs, and safe behavior at crosswalks, intersections, driveways, sidewalks, roads without sidewalks, and corners. Two lessons involve taking walks in the neighborhood and experiencing a “walking school bus.” Map skills are part of the program. The last lesson asks students to create a poster to advocate for safe pedestrian behavior.
