Brampton Kids on Bikes Project research, which was funded by a grant from Heart & Stroke Foundation and volunteers from BikeBrampton, has led to the conclusion that Peel needs to move from TRANSACTIONAL CHANGE to TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE.
Here are a series of links to BikeBrampton’s work with our partners in Peel to successfully achieve Peel School Walk & Bike:
More than 85 years ago, CAA decided that a program was needed to keep children safe while travelling to and from school. At the time, the automobile was just becoming more frequent on our roads, and children were getting injured because of its presence near schools. With increased traffic – from children walking to and from school and automobiles and buses picking up or dropping off students – the CAA School Safety Patrol program is more relevant than ever. The program helps to ensure safer school zones.
Through the decades, we’ve seen proof of the value of the program in Ontario. There are more than 80 documented cases of Patrollers saving lives. While most students will never need to put their training to use, they learn valuable skills that help them become engaged.
The CAA School Safety Patrol program is a joint effort between CAA, the police, school boards, teachers, parents and more than 25,000 dedicated student volunteers.
