“It Happens,” a campaign of the Street Smarts Program, teaches high school students safe driving habits and encourages students to walk, bike, carpool, and take transit to school. In fall 2013, “It Happens” will be hosting a two-day event at each high school to get the students thinking about transportation safety.
The first day will consist of lunchtime activities that teach driving safety. Activities may include a crashed car on display, walking a line with vision-impaired goggles, a prize wheel with trivia questions, information on California driving laws, and other hands-on games.
Soon after the driving day, “It Happens” will host a Bike to School Day that rewards participating students with prizes and food. A raffle will be held at each school for a $50 gift card. The Bike to School Day will be a competition between the high schools of the San Ramon Valley. Which school will win?
