Drive Safe with These Back-to-School Safety Tips

Drive Safe with These Back-to-School Safety Tips | Toronto, ON

With summer coming to a close, it’s time to prepare your children — and yourself — for a new school year. In addition to getting new supplies and clothes, make sure you remember these back-to-school safety tips to help keep you and those around you safe this fall.

Make sure your kids understand bus safety. With many children getting the school bus every morning, it’s important that you teach your kids the rules for getting on and off the bus. This includes:

  • Never running to or from the bus.
  • Staying far back from the side of the road while at the bus stop.
  • Wait until the bus driver signals that it is safe for you to cross the road.
  • Walk when you cross the road, don’t run.

Keep an eye out for children. As you near school zones, make sure you’re alert and looking for children everywhere. Because children tend to be easily distracted, they can sometimes dart into the road without looking. Being vigilant will help you recognize when this happens, preventing potential accidents.

Stick to the speed limit. Speed limits are there for a reason — to keep both you and those around you safe. When driving, make sure you stick to these limits.
