Why:
As part of the “Start of School Strategic Plan” scheduled for LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division during the 2011/2012 school year, Valley Traffic Division will be conducting a TrafficSafety &Enforcement Operation- Press Conferenceas approximately 700,000 students return to school after the holiday recess.

As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports the lowest highway deaths since 1949, and an increase in fatalities among pedestrians, Valley Traffic Division wants to remind our parents and caregivers that we as a collective group have the responsibility for the safety of our children in and around schools   This operation will be conducted in an effort to promote traffic safety.  We want to bring awareness to motorist and parents alike of safety considerations that should be taken when travelling in the vicinity of schools; traffic laws in effect around schools; crossing guard safety; drop-off and Pick-up of children; School Valet Program; Pedestrian safety; and Bicycle Safety.

Children continue to be some of the most vulnerable users of our streets.  Even though children under 15 years of age represent only 15 percent of our population, they make up 30 percent of pedestrian injuries.  Children ages 5 to 9 are at the greatest risk of traffic-related pedestrian injury and death.  Many parents overestimate their children’s pedestrian skills. For additional information, please contact Sergeant Arturo Gomez at 805-559-9637.
