Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety

 
Walking and biking throughout town is a great way to get some exercise, see the community and save gas! However, we want you to be safe and know the rules of the road – especially during busy commute times on our roadways.  

The Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police Department proudly partners with the Santa Clara County Traffic Safe Communities Network, which also includes Safe Routes to School. TSCN created this informative booklet on bicycle and pedestrian safety for parents and youth.
