Mind the Crosswalk!

The City of Boulder, in partnership with Boulder Valley School District, was awarded a Colorado Safe Routes to School grant to promote crosswalk safety in Boulder schools 2012-2015.

 
“Heads Up: Mind the Crosswalk” promotes safe crossing practices, raises awareness of crosswalk ordinances and reminds cyclists, walkers and drivers of their role in crosswalk safety.
