Safety Street returns to Clackamas County Fair, Aug. 12-17

Clackamas Safe Communities' Safety Street, a driving course for children eight years old and younger, returns to the Clackamas County Fair August 12-17. The course will be open from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. every day.

Safety Street also gives children and adults the chance to talk with safety professionals and participate in interactive learning activities, including the Sheriff Office's Mik & Nero Detective Game and the Traffic Safety Commission's Safety Wheel.

In Safety Street, young "drivers" are assigned pedal cars and drive on a simulated city street, accompanied by a parent or adult. Adults ask age-appropriate questions to the children as they drive past the stations, which include traffic-safety messages about school zones, railroad crossings and stop signs. Parents are encouraged to incorporate their own safety messages into the ride. Children who complete the course are issued a Junior Driver's License.
