10/4 is National Walk To School Day
The Visalia Police Department join the Visalia Unified School District and schools from around the country to celebrate National Walk to School Day on October 4th.
Students from the Visalia Unified School District will be walking and rolling to school along with parents, teachers and community leaders. Look for walkers along all streets, especially near schools, in the early morning hours.
Members of the Visalia Police Department will be deploying traffic/patrol officers to the neighborhoods near schools to enforce traffic laws reminding
everyone of the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety this day and every day represents.
Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between law enforcement, families, schools and the broader community.
