A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE
School’s Out! Remember Safety First and Always!
Summer is Here
Summer brings with it particular safety concerns for drivers and pedestrians. More children are playing and riding bikes in the communities where we live and work, vacationers and construction create more road congestion, and summer storms can quickly change road conditions. Please pay close attention while driving in your work or personal vehicle.
Summer Driving Tips
• Use extra caution when driving through school zones, driving around playgrounds and parks
• Slow down and be alert, especially in residential areas
• Pay attention and always anticipate the unexpected. Children may cross the street at the wrong place or suddenly run in front of you
• Take extra time at intersections. Always come to a full stop
• Never pass a vehicle that is stopped for a pedestrian
• Enter and exit driveways/alleys slowly
• Watch for children on and near the road
• Avoid distractions within your vehicle; concentrate on the road and your surroundings
