NHTSA urges drivers to be careful near school zones

Cary area drivers understand the importance of safe driving. There are many hazards on our roads, including other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Drivers need to understand that when they engage in unsafe driving practices, they put others at risk of car accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued an urgent warning for motorists to drive safely near schools and bus stops. There have been many recent accidents across the United States where kids have been seriously injured or killed while going to school. These tragedies could have been avoided if drivers would have been engaged in safe driving activities.

North Carolina drivers need to keep in mind many tips surrounding school zones and bus stops. Drivers should be alert when driving in neighborhoods that have school zones. They should also be alert near bus stops and go slowly near groups of students who are waiting for the bus. Drivers also need to understand how bus signals go. When the lights are flashing yellow drivers need to slow down and prepare to stop. When the bus is stopped with red lights flashing and the stop arm out, motorists must stop and wait until the lights stop flashing and the stop arm is pulled back into the bus.

Tragic school accidents can occur in just a split second. Drivers need to understand how important it is for them to engage in safe driving, especially near schools and buses. Drivers have the responsibility to keep kids safe when they are going to and from school every day.
