A new initiative to promote pedestrian safety near schools and throughout Ridgewood, born out of a cooperative effort between numerous local school and government groups, is set to begin this month.
In mid-April, the village will launch “Stop, Look, Wave: Be Safe Be Seen,” a safety campaign targeted at pedestrians and drivers throughout the village, with the goal of preventing pedestrian accidents that have been an increasingly urgent issue for authorities over the past year.
