5.- Be aware of pedestrians: As the number of children walking or crossing the street increases during the return to school, keep a constant watch for pedestrians. Pay attention to crosswalks and come to a complete stop when pedestrians are crossing.

6.- Park safely: If you are picking up or dropping off a student, choose safe and legal parking spaces. Avoid stopping at prohibited places, such as no-parking zones or designated entry and exit areas.

7.- Model good road behavior: If you have children in the car, remind them of the importance of road safety. By being a good example of a responsible driver, you are teaching young passengers how to behave on the road when they are drivers in the future.

8.- Be patient: Back to school can increase traffic and congestion. Stay patient and avoid aggressive maneuvers. Remember that everyone is trying to get to their destinations safely.

Back to school is an exciting time for many, but it can also be a time of increased stress on the roads. By following these tips, you can help create a safer road environment for everyone by ensuring that students and pedestrians are protected while traveling to and from school.
