Back to School Safety Tips

Back-to-school-safety-safety

As the school doors open, traffic gets a little heavier on our streets. People are back from holidays, school buses and public transit are on regular routes, and more people are walking, cycling or driving to school.

We need to remember during this time to share roads safely. It’s important to slow down and stay alert near school zones and parks, especially before and after school!

Did you know that school buses are one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today? The reality is, more children are hurt outside the bus than inside as passengers. For this reason, it is necessary to know the proper laws and procedures for sharing the road safely with school buses.

  • It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children – from all directions
  • The yellow flashing lights are to alert motorists that the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload passengers
  • The red flashing lights and an extended stop sign arm, signals the bus is stopped and that children are getting on or off the bus
  • Please leave at least 10 feet around a school bus
  • Be alert as children are unpredictable

Sharing the road safely with young pedestrians is just as important as school buses. All drivers should recognize the special safety needs of pedestrians, especially those that are children.

  • Drivers must observe school zone speeds
  • Crossing guards and school patrol officers are there to keep our children safe. If you come up to a set of lights, and the light turns green, but the crossing guard still says stop, follow their direction and not the traffic light
  • Kids are small and are easily distracted. Be observant and alert as you never know when a small child might step out from between parked cars or off a sidewalk
  • Please do not block a crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn
  • Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians
