Back to School Driving Safety Tips

The bell's ringing, it's back to school time!

On September 5, thousands of children will be going back to school. To ensure their safety, it is very important for drivers to follow the rules of the road – especially before and after school.

If you are driving through a school zone, please slow down, be patient and obey the bus signals. If you are dropping off your kids to school, please consider parking a block away and walk your kids to school the rest of the way.
