Safer Roadways

Safer Roadways

The new school year will be starting Thursday, September 5th. Please be reminded of some things that come with beginning a new school year.

  • Younger children are more likely to make mistakes around roads.
  • They will be learning new walking paths, either to the school or to a bus stop
  • They may not have given themselves enough time on the new route, and will be hurrying.
  • Their parents will be learning new driving patterns at an unfamiliar school.
  • All of this can have a ripple-effect to other drivers who also be on the road.
  • New walking paths or traffic patterns around schools


Please be aware as you operate personal vehicles and work vehicles, the next couple of weeks can be challenging as students return to school.   Some tips:

  • Watch your speed. A couple of mph faster will not make a real difference in your arrival time
  • Scan sidewalks and parked cars for signs of movement
  • Keep a safe following distance.
  • Be particularly alert at intersections.
