With the start of the school year, thousands of students will be back which increases well on the dangers on our roads. I’d like to take a quick moment to remind motorists to be attentive and to slow down around schools in their area. Are you hearing me properly. Everyone need to slow down around schools, no matter how good of an excuse you might have.
I also remind to parents and teachers to make students aware of the basic rules for pedestrians, in order to maximize their safety and that of road users. I know I repeat these rules numerous times throughout the year, but I know that when I’m away I can’t control what they do.
I’d also like to ask people to step in if you see a kid in trouble.
