Schoolchildren in Carson City to Celebrate “Walk to School Day” Wednesday 

Portrait of happy school kids talking while walking to school.

Students in Carson City are invited to participate in various Walk to School Day events Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2021. Many parents, teachers and administrators plan to join students in organized walks to promote safely walking or bicycling to school. 

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, it has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration each October. Today, thousands of schools across the country – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico – participate every October. 

In conjunction with Nevada Moves Day, a statewide event held in March each year, the day celebrates the fun and benefits of walking and bicycling to school. It also encourages K-8 students, school staff and families to get physically active.  

During International Walk to School Day and every day, drivers should watch for children walking and bicycling to school and be mindful of school zone speed reductions, as well as varying school start times. Motorists should also only pass bicyclists when it is safe with at least three feet of space between the bicycle and vehicle and never overtake a vehicle that has stopped at a crosswalk. 

Pedestrians and bicyclists should only cross streets when safe and always look for vehicles before and while crossing. Per state law, no U-turns or passing are allowed in active school zones or school crossing zones. 

For more information about Wednesday’s Walk to School Day, please contact Carson City’s Transportation Planner & Western Nevada Safe Routes to School Coordinator Kelly Norman, knorman@carson.org, 775-283-7525.

Nevada Highway Patrol joins forces to stop pedestrian fatalities

Pedestrian Safety is a Two-Way Street

The Nevada Highway Patrol has partnered with other participating Nevada law enforcement agencies in the Joining Forces program and is urging pedestrians and drivers to be aware of each other and to share the road responsibly. From October 12th through the 18th, 2021, the Joining Forces law enforcement team will be issuing citations to pedestrians and motorists who are violating traffic safety laws.

Most people are a pedestrian at least once a day. Between 2015 and 2019, 378 pedestrians lost their lives in pedestrian crashes on Nevada’s roadways. This represents a 23.6% increase in pedestrian traffic fatalities from previous years. In an effort to reverse this trend, Troopers will be looking for traffic offenses made by pedestrians and drivers alike.

The Nevada Highway Patrol remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through promoting safe pedestrian and motorist behavior. Whether you are in a vehicle or on foot, stay alert and safely share the road.
