AAA Recommendations for Safe Driving Near Schools

  • Slow down. A pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling 25 mph is nearly two-thirds less likely to be killed than a pedestrian struck by one traveling just 10 mph faster.

  • Eliminate distractions. Children often cross the road unexpectedly and may emerge suddenly between two parked cars. Taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing.

  • Watch for blind spots. Check for children on the sidewalk, driveway and around your vehicle before slowly backing up.

  • Come to a complete stop. More than one-third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods.

  • Watch for bicycles. Children on bikes are often inexperienced, unsteady and unpredictable. Slow down and allow at least 3 feet of passing distance between your vehicle and the bicycle. If your children ride bikes to school, make sure they wear properly fitted helmets.
