Schools Zone & School Bus Safety

September 12, 2009 by Tom Porter  
Filed under News from Your City Council

I would like to take a moment to remind area motorists to please be extra vigilant in school zones and near school buses as they pick up or drop off children.

I would like motorists to please focus not only on pedestrian safety but school bus safety also. Motorists can help protect children by being especially careful near schools and bus stops where children congregate. Safe driving can be accomplished by obeying speed zones, and by being extra vigilant whenever school age children are present.

Passing a stopped school bus can result in more than just a traffic fine. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one-fifth of all children 14 years of age and younger who die in motor vehicle crashes are pedestrians. These pedestrian fatalities are more likely to happen in the afternoon hours, when school is letting out.

Studies show that more than one-third of motorists in school zones or neighborhoods just “roll through” intersections with a stop sign. Slow down in or near school and residential areas, and be sure to come to a complete stop in all intersections.

Please be careful.

Thank You
