The City of San José Department of Transportation has received a $175,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to support its Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Program, known as Walk 'n' Roll. This grant will allow us to promote safe practices for pedestrians and bicyclists and provide education about the importance of sharing the road.
"Funding from the Office of Traffic Safety helps us educate community members, particularly youth, to stay safe when walking, biking, or scooting," said John Ristow, Director of Transportation. "It's a crucial part of our mission to provide people safe options for getting around without always relying on a car."
"Everyone deserves a safe environment to travel, regardless of how people get to places," OTS Director Barbara Rooney said. "The safety of people walking and biking on our roads is a high priority. Education plays a pivotal role in creating a strong road safety culture that prioritizes traffic safety, especially for our most vulnerable road users."
