Safety Tip of the Month

 

August – school bus safety
1. It’s that time when school buses are everywhere. If a school bus has its lights flashing and stop arm extended, you must stop. The only exception is if you are on the other side of a highway divided by a concrete barrier or grassy median. If you are following or traveling alongside a school bus, the law also requires you to stop at least 10 feet away. Learn more about the school bus stopping law and penalties for violations at www.JustDrivePA.com.

National Stop on Red Week August 2-8
2. Whether you are a teacher, a parent, a school bus driver or a partner in the transportation industry, it is important to assist in educating students about school bus safety. Motorists must stop when they are behind the bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped. To help the public better understand Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping law, PennDOT’s highway safety Web site, .JustDrivePA.com now offers an interactive feature. Visit the sites Traffic Safety Information Center and click on the School Bus Safety link for further details.

3. In 2013, 44 U.S. children died after being left unattended in motor vehicles. Never leave your child alone in the car, no matter what the weather conditions. On a hot day, a child’s temperature heats up to 5 times faster than adults. This tragedy is 100 percent preventable, always look before you lock. Remember heat stroke kills.
