IN THE SCHOOLS
Mornings can be a dangerous time, as students travel to the bus stop, ride their bikes or walk to school. Afternoons present additional risks because children are often distracted by thoughts of playtime and other activities on their journey home.More school-age pedestrians have been killed from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. than any other times of day. Motorists need to be especially cautious during these times. School zone speed limits are in place to slow motorists and help save lives.
