Now that school is in session, the morning commute just got crowded! The morning drive may seem like a rush sometime because everyone has a place to be. However, it is important that you still drive safely- especially when you are taking children to school in the morning!
Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind this school year:
#1: Never pass a stopped bus. If a bus has its stop sign out and flashing red lights, it is illegal to pass them.
#2: Slow down in school zones. The speed limit will suddenly drop and for good reason. There could be students crossing…keep a watchful eye!
#3: No distractions. If you have younger children, be sure to express the importance of no distractions. This means they should be on their best behavior in the back seat!
#4: Review your auto insurance policy. Make sure you have Texas car insurance in the event of an accident. The morning commute can get hectic.
#5: Buckle up. Teach your children the importance of their seat belt and enforce it.
