School’s On

running

Just a reminder to many of our friends and colleagues, many schools around the country will begin and many drivers will be driving through our school zones dropping off their kids or have schools that they must drive by. We need to be aware that many of our kids will not be paying attention to their actions and could find themselves darting across streets bordering many of our schools.

texting and drivingMany states have initiated new traffic laws that prohibit anyone driving through school zones, during the hours of operation, must use a hands-free cell phone device or will be ticketed and fined.  Even though these devices are used to keep both hands on the wheel.. I still see many using these drivers get so involved in their conversations that they are still unaware of their surroundings.  Let’s just put the phones down and keep a keen eye out for those kids who may be so excited to see their friends that they forget about safely crossing the street.
