SNAP/Safe Utah Routes
Safe Routes Utah is replacing SNAP (Student Neighborhood Access Program). Utah Department of Transportation's Safe Routes Utah is a fun and comprehensive program for walking and biking safely to school that engages and educates students, parents, school administrators, crossing guards and communities.
The primary goal of Safe Routes Utah is student safety while the secondary goal to help make the roads around schools safer. Under Utah law, all elementary, middle and junior high schools are required to create and distribute a Safe Routes Plan (formerly a SNAP Plan), which shows the safest routes to school. Safe Routes Utah provides free resources to assist schools in creating and distributing their Safe Routes Plan to students and parents, and it works to:
- Increase the safety and health of students
- Decrease traffic congestion around schools
