Watch for kids at school-crossing zones
Safe Kids Mid-South, led by Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, recommends reviewing these safety tips so you can do your part: Help keep kids safe while getting to and from school.
When You Drive:
• Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods and school zones.
• Take extra time to look for children at intersections, medians, and curbs.
• Enter and exit driveways slowly.
• Watch for children on and near the road in the morning and after school hours.
• Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road. • No talking or texting on cell phone while driving.
When Your Child Walks:
• Have him cross the street with you or an adult until at least 10 years old.
• Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
• Never run out into the streets or cross in between parked cars.
• Make sure your child always walks in front of the school bus so drivers can see him.
