In addition, this program will update the Suggested Routes to School Maps for the 18 elementary and middle schools in Pasadena. Students will receive a survey in Spring 2017 to complete with their parents/guardians that will provide the City with important data to update the maps.In the past 10 years, Pasadena recorded 55 deaths stemming from traffic collisions, including 14 pedestrian fatalities, 27 percent of the total deaths. This grant-funded project is one part of a comprehensive work program by the City’s Transportation, Public Works, Public Health and Police departments to address these collision statistics through engineering, education, enforcement, encouragement and evaluation of pedestrian safety in Pasadena.Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!
