Back-to-School Season

Drive carefully in school zones this Back-to-School Season

It is back-to-school season, which means a little more traffic – bike, pedestrian and car. As summer draws to a close and the classroom bell rings in the new school year, 55 million children across the United States will head back to school. Of that total, AAA estimates that 13% of students walk or bike to school.

Please make it safe for children by paying extra attention when driving. According to AAA, more than 65% of drivers exceed the speed limit within school zones at peak school hours. Be responsible and remember that children may not have the skills or knowledge to pay attention to traffic. Be safe, rather than sorry by following these easy safety tips:

  1. Drive without distraction – no cell phones, texting or adjusting the radio
  2. Obey school zone speed limits
  3. Pick a safe location for drop-off and pick-up of children
  4. Stop for school buses
  5. Be aware and watch for bikes and give them room to navigate

Every child deserves a safe route to school – help by taking a little extra care.
