Safe Routes to School is a grass roots program funded by VDOT, FHWA, and U.S. DOT.
Galax City Safe Routes to School promotes a long-term healthy lifestyle by encouraging students to walk and bike to school. It’s a perfect way for students to get out and get exercise and for parents to set a wonderful example in leadership and healthy living for their children.
The Safe Routes to School Program offers Pedestrian Safety Training to students, civic and church groups, and any group wanting to know how to walk safely through Galax. There we answer important questions such as:
- Do you walk with traffic or facing traffic?
- While riding a bicycle, do you stop for pedestrians?
- Are you teaching your children the right rules of the road to keep them safe?
