  • Slow down and drive extra cautiously.
  • Don’t load or unload children across the street from the school.
  • Don’t double park; it blocks visibility for other children and vehicles.
  • When flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection.
  • Be prepared for kids to appear in unexpected places, like from between parked cars; if they’re on bikes, prepare for them to turn in front of you without looking or signaling.
  • If you need to use your phone, be sure you’re pulled over safely.
  • Watch for kids walking while looking at their phones. 
  • If possible, carpool to reduce the number of cars at school.
  • Don’t ever block a crosswalk; it forces pedestrians to go around you and could put them in the path of moving traffic.
