BACK TO SCHOOL TRAFFIC SAFETY REMINDERS
* Give yourself extra time for your commute.
* Keep an eye out for children walking or riding their bikes to and from school, and youngsters getting on and off school busses.
* Pay attention to school zones by slowing down! Keep in mind if you’re going ten to fourteen miles over the speed limit in an active school zone, you’ll pay a $273.00 ticket! The ticket for failing to stop for a stopped school bus is $173.00.
* And remember, if you’re on a divided highway with an unpaved space of at least five feet, a raised median, or a physical barrier, you don’t have to stop if you’re traveling in the OPPOSITE direction of a school bus which has stopped.
