Support better biking, walking and transit 

DID YOU KNOW?

Between 2006 and 2012, people driving cars hit nearly 19,000 children who were walking or biking in Illinois, and 54 percent of those children were hit within one block of a school.

  • Plan your route using a bicycle map of your community, if available.
  • Ride on streets with bike lanes and enough room to ride outside of the “door zone” when riding alongside parallel parked cars.
  • Consider riding on residential streets when starting out, even if they take you a bit out of the way.
  • Cross major streets at traffic signals.
