Traffic Safety Education
Have you ever had a close call while in a car or crossing the street? Most of us have, and that’s why the City of San José created the Street Smarts Traffic Safety Education Program to address driver, pedestrian, and bicyclist behavior.

Street Smarts
Founded in 2002, the nationally-recognized Street Smarts program has been working with schools, neighborhoods, seniors, and other communities to improve safety on our streets. The current focus is on helping school children learn how to be safer pedestrians and cyclists, and educating seniors on how to make smarter and safer choices while on the road.

If you want to make streets safer, it's just a matter of being smart!
The behavior of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians play a huge role in keeping our streets safer.  Follow these tips to help ensure your safety and the safety of others.

Do you want to learn more about traffic safety? Explore the Street Smarts website and discover all the programs and resources available for increasing your street smarts.
