October is International Walk to School Month. Are you participating in SRTS activities this month? Are you interested and not sure where to start? ITE has resources available to assist your engagement. As featured in the August 2012 issue of the ITE Journal, ITE with support from the National Center for Safe Routes to School developed a series of Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Briefing Sheets. The sheets serve as a quick reference to support the engagement of transportation professionals in the planning, design and implementation of SRTS programs and activities. The briefing sheets can be accessed at http://www.ite.org/safety/default.asp and cover the following topics:

•Introduction
•School Site Selection and Off-site Access
•Walking and Bicycling Audits
•School Route Maps
•Strategies to Improve Traffic Operations and Safety
•School On-site Design
•School Area Traffic Control
•Reduced School Area Speed Limits
•The Use of Traffic Calming Near Schools 

If you have questions or comments about the briefing sheets contact ahorton@ite.org.
