Back to School Safety Month

August is Back to School safety month. Slow down and look out for students in school zones.

As children head back to school drivers, cyclists, and motorcyclists are reminded to be extra careful while driving through school zones.

“Please drive like it is your child, grandchild, niece or nephew walking or riding their bike to school,” Riverside Sheriff Department Southwest Station- Deputy Opice said. “Pick-up and drop-off times can be hectic, but it’s important to be patient and stay safe as children are getting to and from school.”

  • Parents and drivers should follow school policies and procedures for picking up and dropping off students
  • Stop for school buses and watch for students rushing to catch or exit the buses.
  • Parents should teach the children walking or riding to and from school how to cross the road safely such as looking both ways before crossing the street, crossing at marked crosswalks, using available sidewalks.
