School Bus and Traffic Safety for Returning to School in Florida
ORLANDO, FL- As children return to school, it is important to remember traffic safety tips. Much of the focus this year has been on protecting kids from the coronavirus, but traffic safety should always be considered.
Always use caution around school buses. It is vital to give plenty of space to buses and to remember never to get too close to a bus when students are boarding or getting off as this puts children at risk.
When driving in the morning, there are going to be more pedestrians on the road as students and teachers walk to school. Drivers need to stay focused and avoid looking at their phones in order to prevent crashes involving these vulnerable road users.
Bikes are also likely to be more plentiful this year, so motorists should be careful when sharing the road with these individuals. Some of the cyclists will be children, which means that they can make unpredictable moves. Drivers must remember to be cognizant and to slow down to avoid tragic events.
Traffic is about to increase significantly as a result of school reopening. This factor in itself means more congested roads and more challenges for everyone. Remember to be patient, and to look both ways at least two times before moving, especially in locations where bikes may be present. Sadly, more cyclists are killed in Florida than anywhere else in the country, making the state a hazardous place to bike.
