Juvenile Traffic Diversion Program

The Juvenile Traffic Diversion Program provides a ticket to education through enforcement of bicycle, pedestrian and other non-motor vehicle violations and includes education of juveniles and encouragement of safety practices through helmet distribution and support. When law enforcement officers issue a citation to youth under the age of 18 years. These youth are offered the opportunity to attend a traffic safety class in lieu of paying the fines and fees associated with the ticket. The class reviews the law of the road with emphasis on pedestrian and bicycle safety. A speaker, who has sustained a head injury due to a traffic collision, talks to the youth about the potential consequences of failing to follow the laws. 

Helmets are also distributed at the class for youth who need a helmet but cannot afford to purchase one. -Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety for Parents and Youth Booklet
