					Antioch School Kids Learn Street Smarts


Antioch students at Belshaw and Carmen Dragon Elementary Schools will get a visit this
spring from “Mr. Beeps,” an animated robotic car that makes important traffic safety lessons
fun and memorable. Diablo Vista, Jack London, Lone Tree, and Turner Elementary students
met Mr. Beeps this past fall. Mr. Beeps teaches children about proper helmet fit, how to stay
safe in busy school drop-off and pick-up zones, traffic symbol recognition, and how to
properly and safely cross the street for both signalized and unsignalized intersections.

Also this spring Park Middle School students will participate in a 3-day interactive traffic
safety program taught by certified bicycle safety experts and health and safety professionals
from the community. Students will learn the 3 Cs of bicycle checks, the nuances of
rights/laws of pedestrians vs. bicyclists, emergency stops, and more.

Street Smarts Diablo is a bicycle and pedestrian safety program designed to reduce car
trips to schools by providing students and parents with the knowledge and confidence to
start walking, biking, and rolling to school safely.

Street Smarts programs are available to all public schools in Antioch. Contact Kerri Heusler
for more information: kerri@511contracosta.org.
