 School Pick-Up and Drop-Off Safety Tips: The Dos and Don’ts For a Safer Experience

The new school year is upon us, and with that comes traveling to your student’s school to drop-off and pick-up your student. Many might see this as a daunting experience for various reasons, in particular, traffic and disorder. Circulate San Diego has come out with a “Pick-Up and Drop-Off Safety Tips” hand-out to help you easily visualize the Dos and Don’ts of these activities.  The morning rush to school and afternoon rush back to school can be vastly improved by following these guidelines.  And remember to keep an eye out for pedestrians and cyclists if you are commuting by car, especially when turning right or left.

Captain VZ Sighting!

Last week, Captain VZ was sighted at Rolando Park Elementary school, a San Diego Unified School District school. In total, 65 students were taught the 5-steps to cross the street safely.  Almost all of them participated in a safety art contest to help engage their creative minds in drawing those 5-steps. You never know where Captain VZ will show up, but be a superhero and cross safely at crosswalks!


Next Membership Event Scheduled for September 20

Join Circulate San Diego for our next Membership mixer at North Park Beer Company.

We will be releasing a special super-hero themed comic book to educate school children about Vision Zero and street safety. The event will feature remarks from Andrew Bowen (KPBS) and Kathleen Ferrier (City of San Diego), whose likenesses both appear in the comic. The first 50 guests will receive a keepsake copy of the comic book. No host bar.

We’ll have a fun evening with our diverse and engaged membership for networking, drinks, music, and celebrations. Mingle with Circulate staff members, local decisionmakers, and professionals in the land use and transportation space.

Date: September 20, 2018, 5:40-7:30 pm
