School's Open Drive Carefully

School's Open

Mornings can be a dangerous time, as students travel to the bus stop, ride their bikes or walk to school. Afternoons present additional risks because children are often distracted by thoughts of playtime and other activities on their journey home.

More school-age pedestrians have been killed from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. than any other times of day. Motorists need to be especially cautious during these times. School zone speed limits are in place to slow motorists and help save lives.

At the beginning of each school year, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education distributes materials in each region to help promote our “School's Open-Drive Carefully” campaign. Our goal is to work actively within our communities to help decrease child injuries and fatalities due to car crashes.

You can make a difference by staying alert and taking extra care while driving in areas where school children are present.

To schedule a presentation, contact the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education Traffic Safety Community Educator in your area.

To continue to provide this campaign and similar traffic safety programs at no-charge to our communities, your donation is greatly appreciated. Click here to support the Foundation.
