Safe Routes to School: Safety & Mobility Analysis: Report to the California Legislature

This report evaluates the Safe Routes to School (SR2S) program that was created by the California Legislature in 1999. Focus is on the following mandated issues: 1) the effectiveness of the program in reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving children in the vicinity of roadway construction projects; 2) the impact of the program on levels of walking and bicycling to school; and, 3) the safety benefits of the program in comparison with other highway safety programs. The evaluations in this report are based on safety, cost, and demographic data provided by a representative sample of 125 of 570 bicycle, pedestrian safety, and traffic calming projects that received SR2S funding in the first three years of the program. The information is also supplemented by data from external sources, such as collision data from the California Statewide integrated Traffic Records System and land-use maps of the project areas.
