#AskPatty's Ten #SafetyTips for #BackToSchool
More school-age pedestrians are killed during the hour before and after school than any other time of day, according to NHTSA. In fact, SafeRoutesInfo.org reports that more children are hit by cars near school than at any other location.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in fall 2016, approximately 50.4 million students will attend public elementary and secondary schools. And upcoming high school junior and senior students have begun driving themselves to high school for the first time, too. You can try your best, but there’s no way you can prepare students for everything they'll find on the road ahead during the upcoming school year.
AskPatty joins with the National Safety Council. and Bridgestone's "Teens Drive Smart" program to share a collection of ten must-know safety tips back to school season. They're helpful for everybody, whether they're walking, young drivers, or even parents during this important season. We'll be posting them over the course of the month, so keep an eye out for them throughout September. Or if you can't wait, you can get all ten #BackToSchool #SafetyTips here at AskPatty.com
