Police in the city of Novato will attempt to improve pedestrian safety in the area thanks to a grant from the California Department of Public Health. As part of the organization’s PedSafe program, police officials will be able to put forth the “It’s All Up To Us” campaign. The $8,000 grant will be earmarked for enforcement operations and education initiatives working in combination to raise awareness about the importance of pedestrian safety and root out those persons who insist on endangering persons on foot. The funding should allow police to deter dangerous behaviors throughout the summer. A representative of the department explained that this effort could hopefully cut down on injurious and fatal incidents.
