Back to School Safety Tips


back to school tips - ohlig group realty 

Tips for Drivers:

  Plan ahead:

  • Give yourself added time to get your child to school or yourself to work.
  • Added cars and busses mean added congestion and slower traffic.
  • Added construction slows traffic even more.
  • Watch for kids walking or riding bicycles to and from school.
  • Pay attention to school zone flashing lights – don’t speed.
  • Stay off cell phones in a school zone – It is against State law to talk on cell phones in a school zone.
  • Be courteous to other drivers – allow others to turn, merge, etc.
  • Do not cut across parking lots to avoid traffic congestion or signals – it’s not only dangerous but it also violates state law.
  • Avoid the hassle of taking your child to school – put them on a school bus.

Tips for Kids:

  • Always look both ways before crossing a street.
  • Cross only at crosswalks or intersections.
  • Do not ride your bicycles in the street.  Stay on the sidewalks.
  • Walk your bicycles across streets and intersections.
  • Go straight to school and straight home.
  • Walk or ride bicycles with a buddy.
  • Always wear your helmet and other safety gear when riding a bicycle.
  • Listen to and obey school crossing guards
  • Memorize your parent’s phone number and your home address.
