Back To School Traffic Alert 04 Sep 12

Thousands of children are heading back to school today (TUE) and safety officials are reminding motorists to slow down and obey the posted speed limits in school zones. Drivers should try to eliminate distractions as well, since children can cross the road unexpectedly and suddenly. Be sure to back-up responsibly, check for children on the sidewalk, driveway, and around your vehicle, and watch for bicycles. Be sure to come to a complete stop when a school bus stop-arm is extended as well.
