Summer is slowly but surely coming to an end, which means the school year is about to start back up again. With all the excitement of starting new classes, meeting new teachers, and making new friends, it can be easy to forget other important things that come with the new school year, like school safety….
With schools going back into session this month, student safety is on top of many parents’ and teachers’ minds, especially in regards to transportation. While many children ride the bus to school each morning, it’s important to remember accidents can and do happen. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is cautioning Texans to slow down within school zones and to be aware of children walking to and from school buses in the mornings and afternoons.
With school back in full swing, Lubbock motorists will frequently drive around and through school zones. School zones can be particularly dangerous for children, and according to the National Safe Routes to School Program, cars hit more children near schools than in any other location. Because school zones can be so dangerous, it’s crucial for Texas drivers to exercise extra caution when driving through them.
