Students who are planning to do a video might like to contact East Bay Regional Parks to learn about the Volunteer Bicycle Patrol regarding bicycle safety on trails. Call Heather Marlais at 510-690-6580 for more information.

How about a video that basically discourages kids from riding their bikes because drivers these days are too distracted to pay attention to the kids on the bikes.

Riding bikes is a great way for kids to get exercise and to get to and from school. But.... is it worth it when the Danville parents are too distracted to stop talking on their phones or multi-tasking while driving their kids to school or events.

How about more police presence at important cross walk areas before and after school to give out citations to people who endanger our kids.
