In a few short weeks thousands of New York children will be traveling to school via bus, rail, and on foot. Mayor DeBlasio’s initiative Vision Zero has strived to reduce the number of pedestrian knockdowns and personal injuries, however serious and fatal incidents still occur regularly.
Several organizations, including Operation Lifesaver provide teachers and parents with educational resources for children.
Operation Lifesaver’s website hosts an abundance of information regarding rail safety, which is especially important to NYC kids. Visit Operation Lifesaver to download lesson plans, watch kid friendly ideos, and read safety tips.
