La Escuela Regresa En Sesión – Reglas Para Vivir

  1. Habrá un montón de niños pasarela ay desde las escuelas. Estar alerta.
  2. Los autobuses escolares también estarán en el camino. Pare siempre cuando están dejando a los estudiantes encendido o apagado. Nunca pase un autobús escolar detenido.
  3. Tenga cuidado con las paradas del autobús escolar. Los niños no están muy despiertos y no están prestando atención a los vehículos.
  4. A veces los niños salen de entre los coches estacionados. Esté atento a esto.
  5. Frente a las escuelas, los padres que conducen a sus hijos a la escuela pueden de repente dejar de dejar salir a sus hijos. Preste atención y conduzca especialmente lento en estas áreas.
  6. La visibilidad y la parada son pobres cuando está lloviendo o nevando. Reduzca la velocidad y concentrarse en lo que está sucediendo a su alrededor.

School Is Back In Session – Rules To Live By

  1. There will be lots of kids walkway to and from schools. Be alert.
  2. School buses will also be on the road. Always stop when they are letting students on or off. Never pass a stopped school bus.
  3. Be wary at school bus stops. The kids are not quite awake and are not paying attention to vehicles.
  4. Kids sometimes dart out from between parked cars. Be on the look out for this.
  5. In front of schools, parents who drive their kids to school may suddenly stop to let their children out. Pay attention and drive especially slow in these areas.
  6. Visibility and stopping are poor when it is raining or snowing. Slow down and focus on what is going on around you.
