Fall Is Here & School Is Back In Session.by William Hogan on 08/31/19
Here we are on the last "unofficial" weekend of summer which means by sometime early next week all the local schools in our neighborhoods will be back in session. This brings on a added level of concern for all of us as drivers. Both young elementary school age children, as well as high school age kids aren't always as watchful as they should be about their surroundings while walking to school or getting on or off the bus. Please make sure you are watching as a driver for the unexpected in a child running from behind a parked vehicle or bus or from the curb in front of you driving. And remember to obey the directions of those sweet little ladies who serve as crossing guards. They are the rule of law in their domain and they take their roles very seriously! And by all means, pay attention to stopped school buses with their Stop Arms down. It's the law to stop at least 10 feet short!
