Back to School Driver Safety Tips / Program Updates!

Welcome back to school! As students prepare for the new school year, we want to ensure the greatest level of safety for everyone. Drivers should always:

    • Adhere to the 25 mph zone, and slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits;
    • Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures;
    • Refrain from unloading children at locations across the street from the school;
    • Cross the street in the crosswalks only;
    • Avoid stopping or double parking on crosswalks to let children out of the car;
    • Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing;
    • Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing out of a driveway and in areas near a school; and
    • Forgo the use of cell phones!
