BACK TO SCHOOL TRAFFIC SAFETY REMINDERS
As school starts up, please be aware of the following proactive measures you can take to ensure the safety of students:
- Drive cautiously. Children are smaller and less visible than adults.
- Children can be easily distracted and may have difficulty judging traffic situations.
- Slow down near schools.
- Don’t drive distracted. Stay focused.
- Scan between parked cars and other obstructions.
- Always stop for school buses that are loading or unloading students.
Tips for Parents/Guardians
- Do not drop off students in the street. Pull over to a designated passenger loading/unloading area or other legal place to park.
- Arrive early to drop off/pick up your child to avoid traffic congestion.
- Park nearby and walk to the school.
- Cross the street at crosswalks and intersections only.
“Automobile crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 3 and older-whether a child is a passenger in a car or is struck while walking or biking to school.” - Automobile Association of America.
