PedBee Educational Materials

Pedbee, the city’s pedestrian safety mascot, was born in 1993, but never seems to get older. The Pedbee Education Program teaches children in grades K-5 about pedestrian and traffic safety. Pedbee visits schools, hands out fun, educational activity books and leads pedestrian safety activities, such as how to properly cross a street. On this page, Pedbee shares traffic safety tips for children of all ages. 
  
Each year more than 50,000 children are injured traffic-related incidents while walking. Most such injuries are the result of crossing a street in an unsafe manner. The Transportation Department and its Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services group are dedicated to creating a safer roadway environment for all users and engaging the community to become active participants in the traffic safety process.
