It’s back-to-school season, which means the streets are likely to have more traffic congestion and more foot traffic. Whether you’re dropping off your children at school or simply driving past a school building, here are some important back-to-school safety tips to keep in mind.
There are several things you can do to improve the safety of
your family and others when dropping off your children at school. First, avoid
double parking, since it can lower the visibility for other drivers and students.
When picking up or dropping off, always do so in the designated location.
Dropping your child off across the street may save you time waiting in line,
but it can be dangerous for your child to cross the street.
Even if you don’t have kids, you’ll still need to share the
road with school-age children. It’s important to avoid blocking the crosswalk
while stopping at a red light since students might walk into traffic trying to
get around your vehicle. Additionally, slow down in school zones in case
students are walking.
We at Greenwood Chevrolet hope your family has a fantastic
school year. Stop by our service department for a vehicle inspection and any
necessary maintenance before making the commute to school.
