About Streets for All

We all share the responsibility to make Beach Cities streets safe for everyone, including pedestrians and bicyclists. Safe places to walk and bike are important for supporting active, vibrant communities. BCHD is launching a safety campaign to educate the community on how they can create “Streets for All”: bicyclists, pedestrians, drivers, strollers, people with disabilities and skateboarders.

Streets for All focuses on spreading public education messages about street safety to residents of all ages and spotlighting the need for increased safety measures along highly-trafficked corridors like Prospect Avenue — which cuts through six school zones and impacts more than 5,500 Redondo Beach students on daily basis.

Key campaign themes:

  • Encourage bicyclists to stop at stop signs and ride in the direction of traffic
  • Educate pedestrians about using crosswalks and waiting for signals
  • Alert motorists to slow down and watch for people
  • Promote “Streets for All” and sharing the road for all users

Why it matters:

  • From 2010 to 2013, there were 64 car crashes involving bicyclists or pedestrians near Redondo Beach schools
  • Nearly all students who attend Beach Cities schools live within walking or biking distance
  • Active Living Research indicates that educational efforts can improve safety and increase the number of children walking and biking to and from school
  • Increasing walking and biking to school helps improve students' academic performance through increased concentration in the classroom

Slow your roll. Speeding gives you less time to react to something or someone in your path. #StreetsForAll

Bicyclists must come to a complete stop at any stop sign or stoplight, and yield to those who arrive first. #StreetsForAll

Cross at the corner or crosswalk, and always look both ways before crossing. Make eye contact with drivers to make sure they see you. #StreetsForAll

Always ride in the direction of traffic, and use signals when turning. These simple acts help bicyclists be more visible and predictable to those around them. #StreetsForAll

Keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions - like checking your phone - while driving. #StreetsForAll.
