Walk 'n Roll to School Day
Mark your calendar for our next event, Bike 'n Roll to School Day on May 8, 2024.
Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating Walk 'n Roll to School Day in October 2023. National Walk 'n Roll to School Day promotes pedestrian safety and the importance of daily physical activity.
Learning and practicing proper pedestrian habits are important life skills. With students returning to school, keep an eye out for the school zone flashing lights both in the morning and in the afternoon. Watch a Pedestrian Safety video and learn tips to help students get to school and back home safely. Together, we can make our community a safe place to Walk ‘n Roll.
Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon
A new type of traffic control device was installed, adjacent to Maus Middle School, to enhance safety for pedestrians crossing Coit Road at Hay River Trail. The new signal is designed to improve safety for pedestrians while minimizing delay to motorists. A Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) differs from a pre-timed traffic signal or flashing beacon because it remains inactive or dark until activated by a pedestrian. PHBs help increase driver awareness to pedestrians crossing the roadway. View a user guide for drivers and pedestrians (PDF).
A Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) is a supplemental warning device that alerts motorists of a pedestrian crosswalk and to yield to pedestrians. The RRFB uses rectangular yellow lights that flash in a rapidly alternating or flickering sequence when activated by a pedestrian. The lights flash for a set time to allow a pedestrian adequate time to cross the street. Read more about this supplemental warning device (PDF).
Here's how to get involved:
1. Take the pledge to Walk 'n Roll safely to school.
2. Download a certificate to acknowledge you took the pledge.
3. Share it with your family and friends, and encourage them to take the pledge.
