Time to get the bike out – Kids traffic safety curriculum goes open source

In the midst of Treena Grevatt’s twitter reminders of the early start of cycling in Ottawa (and her retweets of wise words and links such as this to remind motorists like me!), it was encouraging to read the recent story entitled Kids traffic safety curriculum goes open source.  According to this post by BikePortland.org,  “The Bicycle Transportation Alliance, with a grant from the Oregon Safe Routes to School program, has developed a curriculum to teach traffic safety to young people. Called Neighborhood Navigators, the curriculum is available for kindergarten through eighth grade and is available free via download from the BTA’s website.”  Kudos to the BTA and the Government of Oregon for this wise and generous gift to the public!

Happy Spring and safe cycling to all!
