First day of school – Start of the project “Safe way to school”
The municipality of Salorno, the elementary schools, the association VKE and the policy have elaborated a manual with some guidelines for children how to safely walk, cycle or go by bus to school. The project aims at encouraging parents to allow their kids going to school by their own. This, in turn, will prevent the morning traffic chaos in front of the two elementary schools, promote the independence and responsiveness of the children, and, moreover, this morning activity has a positive impact on their health and on the environment.
Furthermore, the manual includes a map with save roads for pedestrians and cyclists, and gives advices for parents.
