Safety Tips for Back to School

Back to School

Back to School time – be cautious & alert in School Zones!

Yes, it is Back to School time already!

In the next few weeks 55 million children across the United States will be heading back to school. Of that total, AAA estimates that 13% of students walk or bike to school. Walking or biking to school is great exercise for kids. However, during this transition, road travel increases and traffic patterns shift, making it a dangerous time of year for both drivers and pedestrians, especially young children. The more prepared they are the better. So here are some simple safety tips that parents can use to help get your kids safely to and from school:

  • Practice the route with your children
  • Teach them to always use the same route, no shortcuts
  • Cross streets only at crosswalks, preferably with crossing guards
  • Always use left-right-left rule when crossing the street
  • Put away the cell phone – distracted walking/biking is as dangerous as distracted driving
  • Walk in a group
  • Don’t wear headphones
  • Bikers should obey traffic laws just like vehicles
  • If riding a bike or scooter, always wear a helmet
  • Younger children should be taught to walk bikes across the street

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.
