Thanks to Collin Worth, Bicycle Coordinator for the City of Miami, for sending this video to  Transit Miami. The Safe Routes to School Pedestrian & Bike PSAs are part of the Safe Routes to School Awareness Campaign that the University of Miami and CBS have done with the Florida Department of Transportation - District Six.

UM/CBS will have this contract running until the end of August.  The PSAs also have Spanish and Haitian Creole versions that are running on Mega TV and Island TV, respectively as part of the SRTS Media campaign.

Yesterday was International Walk to School Day, and while you wouldn’t have known that here in Miami due to scant coverage in the press, one local school did their part to make the event a success.

More than half of the Temple Beth Am Day School students walked and biked to school along with parents, teachers and community leaders. County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez and Pinecrest Police Chief John Hohensee welcomed and congratulated the participants.

In the U.S., International Walk and Bike to School Day included 5,000 schools from all 50 states. Walkers from the U.S. joined children and adults in 40 countries around the world.

Walk and Bike to School events work 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, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.
