This summer, join, Go Human -- SCAG’s award-winning traffic safety and active transportation encouragement program -- as we will be hosting 15 bicycle rodeos and safety programming booths for kids in Los Angeles County and Orange County. Bike rodeos, or bicycle skills workshops for kids, provide opportunities to learn safety tips, build bicycling skills and increase kids’ confidence on a bike. League Certified Instructors will teach helmet fitting, ABC Quick Checks, how to cross the street safely, bike handling skills, yielding and more. Through games, like Find the Hazard and Spinner trivia, as well as bicycle courses, kids experience hands-on learning and education (with friendly support from safety costume characters).

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has been awarded a $550,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to fund continued work on its Go Human traffic safety program.

Southern California has some of the highest levels of injuries and fatalities involving people walking and biking in the country. In the six-county SCAG region (Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties), more than four people die every day in traffic collisions, on average. People walking or riding bikes account for 27 percent of those deaths while only comprising 12 percent of all trips.

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is expanding its award-winning Go Human traffic safety campaign to include safety messaging for scooters.

Through a partnership with a leader in last-mile electric scooter mobility, Bird, SCAG’s Go Human campaign will remind drivers to safely share the road with e-scooter riders and will remind riders to wear helmets and ride in bike lanes rather than sidewalks. Ads will appear in Culver City, Los Angeles and Santa Monica through the month of November.

Lake Elsinore, Calif. – The City of Lake Elsinore and the Southern California Association of Governments’ (SCAG) Go Human campaign invite residents and visitors to bike, walk, skate or roll to Active Lake Elsinore, a free community festival on Saturday, October 27, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., at City Park during the Día de Los Muertos Celebration. The event gives residents and visitors an opportunity to test out potential street improvements that make it safer and easier for people to get around Lake Elsinore on foot and by bike and provide their feedback to city staff.

The community input gathered at Active Lake Elsinore will inform the city as they develop their first Active Transportation Plan. The new Active Transportation Plan will identify bicycle and pedestrian improvements throughout the city to improve connectivity, establish safe routes to schools, increase accessibility to local destinations and promote active, healthy lifestyles by recommending strategies to increase rates of walking and biking in the community.

Work was recently completed on a study intended to provide a toolbox of resources for local providers of public transportation to incorporate planning for climate change adaptation and resiliency into their short range planning, asset management, and procurement/contracting processes. This work occurred in coordination with the Regional Transit Technical Advisory Committee. The toolbox resources are available for download on the SCAG website.
