Billboard Targets Aggressive Drivers

Congratulations to the Champaign-Urbana Safe Routes to School Project on unveiling their new billboard:


The sign, an incredibly effective visual argument against speeding, is only one small part of a comprehensive program that is getting kids across these two municipalities more active on their way to school.  Champaign-Urbana Safe Routes has also received state funding to improve the street signage around Urbana’s schools, decorated the local buses with transportation safety messages, and is working with the Active Transportation Alliance to introduce a Walking School Bus program at King Elementary.  Cynthia Hoyle and Rose Hudson are outstanding examples of advocates changing the transportation culture in their community.  To learn more about their work with the Champaign-Urbana Safe Routes to School Project, click here.  To learn more about Safe Routes to School where you live, click here.
