Think of the morning craziness when dropping off kids - traffic congestion at the school, school buses dropping off, kids on bikes, and rushed parents trying to unload kids before work. The same goes for after school when everyone is picking up.
According to the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related incidents are four to seven years old and they're walking. This can happen when a motorist illegally passes a stopped school bus.
Don't block the crosswalk at a red light or waiting to make a turn as this can force pedestrians to go around you and can put them in the path of moving traffic.
Drivers have a lot to pay attention to in school zones. When school starts, exercise a little extra care and caution and remember - head up, phone down!
