Keep kids safe this new school year with these pedestrian and driver safety tips:

 

While walking:

___ Always cross the street with an adult until age 10.

___ Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks when possible.

___ Look left, right and left again when crossing.

___ Always walk, never run, when crossing streets.

___ Walk on sidewalks or paths.

___ Walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible if there are no sidewalks.

While driving:

___ Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods and school zones.

___ Take extra time to look for children on and near the road, before and after school hours.

___ Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
