Nevada celebrates the 5th annual Nevada Moves Day

CARSON CITY - March 19th is the 5th annual Nevada Moves Day and schools all over the state are organizing events to promote walking and biking to school.

Events are planned for Carson City and Clark, Washoe, Douglas, Lyon, Lincoln, Elko and other counties, with more than 110 schools across the state also expected to commit.

Whether as part of an organized event or not, Nevada Moves Day is an opportunity to help children learn more about pedestrian and bicycling safety, NDOT Bicycle, Pedestrian and Safe Routes to School Program Manager Bill Story said. Plus, walking or biking to school can lessen up to 25 percent of morning rush hour traffic that results from children being driven to school.

During Nevada Moves Day and every day, drivers should watch for children walking and bicycling to school and be mindful of reduced speeds and varying school start times in school zones.
