Back To School Auto Accidents: Driving With Awareness

Back To School Auto Accidents: Driving With Awareness

Back to school is upon us. That means more back to school traffic as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. Parents and children alike are making their way to and from school each day and with that, each day traffic increases. Therefore, it is important that you are vigilant and operate your vehicle defensively as you travel. Back to school accidents are on the rise during this time of year, so be sure to consider these tips.

1. Watch for school zones. Typically there is a change in speed when it comes to a school zone. Watch for children crossing.

2. Watch for unexperienced pedestrians and bicyclists. Many children may be making their way to school by a different mode of transportation for the first time. Therefore, pay special attention for these individuals and be vigilant.

3. Keep a safe distance and watch for sudden stops. A child may suddenly cross into traffic or a car may stop quickly realize they are entering a school zone. These sudden stops happen, and it is important to keep a safe distance to avoid collision.

4. Watch for school buses. School buses often make frequent stops. Children may run across the street to catch the bus last minute or get off the bus. Be vigilant around school buses.  

5. Do not drive distracted. Be sure not to text and drive, mess with the radio, look down, eat a meal or turn around to deal with unruly children while driving. Pay attention to the road and do not let distractions disrupt your travel.
