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. In backing this effort, BCHD launched 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 a 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
New! Virtual International Walk to School Day
The 23rd annual International Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, October 7, 2020! Join Beach Cities Health District with a virtual event to mark the occasion! Even though we’re virtual, it’s still a great way for students and families to be active. We encourage you to walk together as a family at any time that works for you. Remember to wear your face covering and stay at least 6 feet apart from others who are not part of your household.
Share photos of your walk on social media! Use #WalktoSchoolDay.
