It is that time of the year when drivers have to deal with an abundance of children walking to and from school. To avoid accidents, drivers should take more care and be extra cautious and alert especially while driving around schools. Parents should keep certain rules in mind while walking and driving their kids to school. It is always advisable to walk your child to the bus stop and back.

If you ride to school in a school bus, you should always be on time. You should stay in your seat and avoid pushing and shoving. Teen drivers should take extra precautions while driving to school and back. Talking and texting on the cell phone while driving should be strictly prohibited. Any type of earphones should not be used while driving. A very simple and important safety driving tip is to remember to pay full attention. Many accidents occur due to driver inattention and carelessness like applying makeup, changing the radio station and focusing on other things rather than vehicles and pedestrians in the area.

A few years ago one of our state legislator "geniuses" pushed through a bill which became law designating all school zones 20 mph 24/7/365! Why would you need to look out for kids at 3:00 AM on a Sunday morning? There was no previous statistics of any increase in school zone accidents. In fact there were 0.0% school zone accidents. After 1 year (the minimum) the law was repealed and in the next election the "genious" was sent packing. Unfortunately many people have apparently failed to get the word and continue to drive 20mph in school zones when school is not before or after in session.
