Back To School Safety

With the start of the school year just around the corner, students will be returning to classes and school buses are expected to be everywhere. Here are a few simple rules to keep in mind to ensure their safe return.

When traveling in school zones obey the speed limit and watch for Crossing Guards, it is illegal to pass a stopped car at a cross walk.  In the warmer months of the school year be on the lookout for more pedestrian and bicycle traffic.  If a school bus has its lights flashing and stop arm extended, you must stop unless you are on the other side of a divided highway. If you are following or traveling alongside a school bus, the law also requires you to stop at least 10 feet away.

Heading back to school after a long summer break is hard enough, so give them a brake and keep them safe!
