Pedestrian Safety in Rancho Cucamonga

The City of Rancho Cucamonga (RC) is located 40 miles east of Los Angeles. RC is a place where the Mojave Trail, the Old Spanish Trail, the Santa Fe Trail, former U.S. Route 66, and El Camino Real converge. It is a unique community “inspiring a lifestyle that embraces a healthy mind, body, and earth through active transportation.”  RC’s complete Healthy Living program is available on their website.

On January 25, 2012 the California Department of Public Health conducted a pedestrian safety training program in Rancho Cucamonga. The training brought many stakeholders: RC police department, public health advocates, bicycle advocates, school teachers, RC city staff, planners, consultants, non-profit organizations, and residents. It also provided interactive exercises on risk communication and a brainstorm session on road safety.

RC’s local news station covered the event and posted the video on the city’s website and Vimeo channel. See Healthy RC Living episode 32, minutes 4:50 to 9:00.
