Navigating School Traffic
Posted 9/22/19

Kids are always watching - Are you a good driver role model? Here are some tips for drivers to help keep pedestrians safe in your neighborhood and around schools.

  1. When driving put your phone in the backseat, or out of sight. Distracted driving is dangerous to you, other

    drivers and pedestrians.

  2. Follow the speed limit! Unless posted lower, the speed limit is 25 MPH in residential and school zones

    (within 500 to 1,000 feet of a school).

  3. Give pedestrians the Right-of-Way. Be extra careful when driving at night or in bad weather.

  4. Stop at the crosswalk line, to help other drivers see the pedestrian and stop too.

  5. Pay extra attention when driving in an area where pedestrians might be: parking lots, shopping centers,

    city downtown locations.
