The LA Street Smarts Program uses a creative, interactive experience to help children learn about pedestrian safety while still in elementary school.
By walking through LA Steet Smarts: Richie's Neighborhood, a replica of a small neighborhood, children learn how to:
Cross intersections at stoplights
Avoid rescuing balls thrown into the street
Signal drivers who are backing up
Safely walk around motor vehicles
All children who complete their experience in the learning environment are provided with injury prevention materials to take home to reinforce the safety concepts and lessons covered during this interactive educational experience.
