Remember: Head Up, Distractions Down
Kid pedestrians are not the only ones distracted. Drivers have to pay special attention in school zones, or anywhere kids are walking near traffic. When driving, one call or text can change everything.
Eliminate or keep eating, music, phone, make-up applications, hair combing, picking up dropped objects, writing, looking for item distractions to a bare minimum.
It is important for drivers to slow down and pay attention when kids are present – especially before and after school. As your children march out the door on that first day of school – and every day – there is really only one priority: Nothing is more important than making sure they get home safely.
