Kids Back In School – Keep Them Safe!

School-ZoneDid you survive the kids going back to school?  It’s not that the kids themselves do anything to make the time bad.  It’s the added traffic during in/out times that we have to plan for.

And make no mistake about it.  You do have to plan.  The first couple of weeks are usually worse because bus drivers and parents of kids at new schools aren’t familiar with the routes or where the drop offs/pick ups are.  But by the time we’re into the 2nd month, things settle down substantially and we’re “back to normal,” so to speak.

It’s always good idea to give yourself some extra time when heading somewhere.  And if you know that it’s around the time kids are arriving at school or school is letting out, this is a must.  Knowing where schools are is important too.  You can take a detour on a different road if you plan ahead.  It’s not always possible, but when it is it can be helpful.

If you do find yourself in a school zone, please, make sure you obey the traffic rules.  Slowing down to 15mph when lights are flashing can save a life.  However, it’s a good idea to always be extra cautious in these areas, not just when the lights are flashing.  And put that cell phone down!  The risk is just not worth it.

Let’s keep our kids safe!
