Take the Street Smarts Pledge

Post Date:05/21/2019 11:52 AM

Are you Street Smart? Novato is participating in Street Smarts, an educational campaign designed to promote safe driving, biking and walking in Marin County. Show your commitment to safe driving in Novato by taking the Safe Driving Pledge. Those who take the pledge will receive a free window decal.

Street Smarts Marin is a traffic safety program that educates drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists about safety issues in order to encourage positive behavior change. This program is designed to make Marin's streets safer and friendlier and to reduce the number of traffic-related accidents.

Street Smarts Safety Tips:

  • Only cross the street in marked crosswalks
  • Look left, right, left again and behind before crossing the street
  • Watch for turning cars
  • Establish eye contact with drivers before crossing — especially at stop signs
  • When crossing at a crosswalk signal, start only at the walk sign, continue through the flashing signal
