Traffic Safety Education

         ~ Children Learn About  the Rules of the Road ~

Bike safety training at the Children's Safety Village

Traffic safety lessons begin in the classroom where children are taught about Sign Recognition, Rules of the Road, Pedestrian Safety and Crosswalk Safety.  Then, they get the opportunity to drive miniature cars, or ride bikes throughout the Village as they demonstrate their knowledge of street signs, hand signals, allowing pedestrians to cross in front of them, and stopping at the railroad tracks to look and listen for a train.  Taking the students on a train ride is another highlight for them as they review all the road signs mentioned in the classroom.
