School is Back in Session

Warning Schools Open Drive safely

It is that time of year again and by following some simple safety tips we can all make sure children are safe.

Motorists:

  • Slow down.
  • Be especially careful when driving on neighborhood streets and around school zones, always expect the unexpected.
  • Be alert for children walking to and from school as you back out of your driveway or leave your parking garage.
  • Watch for children on bicycles, especially at intersections and driveways. Young bicyclists have a tendency to dart out of driveways without looking for traffic.
  • Stop your car when you see lights flashing on a school bus. Red flashing lights indicate that the bus is stopped and students are getting on or off.
  • Do not start driving until the red lights stop flashing. Be aware that a child may dash across the street.
  • When you approach a school bus picking up a child, it is the law to stop. When the flashing lights come on and the red stop sign extends that means STOP.
