It’s hard to believe, but back to school season is already here. Whether you live near a college campus, high school, or any other school, it’s important to remember some key back to school driving tips to ensure you and everyone around you is as safe as possible this fall.
Drive slowly near schools
When school isn’t in session, it’s easy to ignore “school zone” signs, but it’s time to get back into the habit of reducing speed to the posted limit in this areas, even when no one seems to be around.
Look for pedestrians
Back-to-school season typically means you’ll find more pedestrians walking to and from school in the morning and late afternoon. This can cause a slight increase in traffic in some areas, so be sure to plan accordingly as you take on your daily commute during the school year.
Share the road with bikes
The school year also typically means an increase in bike traffic, especially if you live near a college campus or high school. Exercise increased caution around bikers and give them plenty of room to maneuver safely to avoid a potential accident.
