Watch Out: It's A School Zone
May 26, 2006
Driving in and around schools should be done with complete care. The reason for this is that children have this very carefree nature that they would not even consider doing things even where there could be danger for them. That is why it is expected that drivers should always be careful when driving around school zones.
When you are approaching a school zone, it is best if you start to slow down. Automobile experts suggest that when driving, you do not speed around schools. You also should not speed around neighborhoods. These areas are usually where children roam freely about for these are where they commonly are.
You should always be on the watch for school zones. For some schools, there are signs before the actual location of the school telling drivers and motorists what is up ahead. However, some communities do not have such signs for some school areas. If you want, you can work with the school or the community it belongs to. It is important that motorists are warned about these areas ahead of time.
There are two things to actually expect: the unexpected and the expected. For the unexpected, remember that the child’s reaction to a speeding vehicle would be far different from that of an adult’s. On the other hand, when you see a ball or a dog on the street, you should expect to see a child following suit.
You should scan the area around your vehicle. You should not only look for children in front of your vehicle but you might as well check the sides and the rear. You see, children are fond of playing on the sidewalk or even along the road. It is important that you know if there are children so as to avoid any accidents.
