Learning rules of the road

SARANAC LAKE – The week of July 7, the Saranac Lake Area Youth Program, Franklin County Safe Routes to School and the North Country Healthy Heart Network teamed up to provide 9- and 10-year-old youth program participants with five days of biking and walking education.

The campers learned the “rules of the road,” including signaling and turning, riding safely on the road, and exiting from a driveway. The week culminated with a group walk through the village, focusing on route planning and pedestrian safety.
