Have you ever had a close call while in a car or crossing the street? Most of us have, and that’s why the City of San José created the STREET SMARTS Traffic Safety Education Program to address driver, pedestrian and bicyclist behavior.

Founded in 2002, the nationally-recognized STREET SMARTS program has been working with schools, neighborhoods, seniors and other communities to improve safety on our streets. Every year, tens of thousands of kids learn how to be safer pedestrians and cyclists, while thousands of adults are making smarter choices on our roads.
