The educational and enforcement program developed for the bicyle safety curriculum in the Temple City Unified School District is described and evaluated. As a result of the project, Temple City now meets the following standards: an effective training and education program designed and implemented for pedestrians and bicyclists in the kindergarten to sixth grade age group; more extensive protection for the child pedestrian; full utilization of the 'Safest Route to School' program; parent-teacher groups encouraged to promote the safety of school children; enforcement of pedestrian and bicycle regulations at high hazard location; a Community Traffic Safety Officer; a student safety patrol; and an accident reporting and recording procedure for the continuing measurement of the pedestrian injury problem and the extent to which specific countermeasures are associated with changes in pedestrian injuries and deaths.
