School’s Open, Drive Carefully

AAA’s annual “School’s Open—Drive Carefully” campaign alerts motorists to the special risks to school-age children from motor vehicle crashes, the leading cause of death for children from five to fourteen years old. This year, the campaign begins September 2, 2015 and runs through October 14.

With our schools reopening, children will be boarding buses and walking to and from school. All motorists should drive carefully and be especially aware of school speed zones, school bus traffic, and children walking. Drivers should be particularly alert for children darting out between parked cars on busy streets.

Motorists will receive an additional reminder each time they see one of the “School’s Open” bumper stickers on official vehicles, school buses and passenger cars.
