There are several traffic safety school days and weeks throughout the year. National Bike to School Day is in May. Walk to School Day and School Bus Safety Week are in October. These are great times to promote traffic safety with the kiddos.
Free Content for Traffic Safety School Days and Events
These special awareness events are an opportunity for community outreach and education. Learning good traffic safety behaviors at a young age can lead to safer, more competent road users. The Northeast Florida Community Traffic Safety Program has excellent resources for everyone to share… schools, teachers, parents, daycare centers, community groups, etc.

Walking, Biking, and School Bus Safety Rules for Children and Drivers
Three of our safety bookmarks distributed to community public libraries in Northeast Florida include school bus, biking, and walking safety education. The graphics below can be printed and handed out as a flyer. You could also fold it in half and use it as a bookmark! One half has a crossword puzzle or maze to keep kids engaged while learning (or refreshing) the safety rules. The other half has safe driving reminders for motorists. These would be great pieces for kids to do at school and take home to share with their parents and caregivers.
