Back to School Safety

Back to school safety

School is once again in session, and with its return, children are walking, running and biking their way back to class. As they begin a new school year, this is a good time for a reminder that driving cautiously near children is everyone’s responsibility.

Before placing the transmission in gear, are you sure there are no little ones in front or behind you? Children will be moving along sidewalks, waiting at or near bus stops, and passing by driveways throughout many neighborhoods around the country. They might even be near your vehicle. Be sure to check the area around your vehicle to make sure it’s clear before taking it out of park.

Well known for their swiftness, children can sometimes move unexpectedly, and they don’t always cross the street in marked intersections. Slow down in residential neighborhoods and school zones. Scan sidewalks to see if a child is about to walk into the street. Plan for sudden movements by remaining alert to your surroundings.

Children are depending on you this school season to help keep them safe. Don’t let them down.
