Driving tips as kids head back to school

It's fall, so kids are back in school. Suddenly, there is a lot more morning traffic -- or, at least, the traffic patterns have changed. You see an increase in teen drivers in the morning, and you also have a lot of parents bringing younger kids to school.

The risk is greater of an accident. Here are a few tips to avoid an accident:

  • If you can, consider carpooling. If everyone did this with just one other family, it could cut the traffic levels in half. That alone makes the accident risk lower.
  • Always take the children all the way to the school. Parents may feel tempted to park on the other side of the street where the traffic isn't as heavy. However, there is a risk of pedestrian injuries with many kids crossing the road.
  • Never double park. Yes, the lot may get full and you may be in a hurry, but double parking is illegal and dangerous. It reduces visibility, and it can cause both accidents and road rage.
  • Pay close attention in the school zone. Understand that kids are unpredictable. Drive slower. Watch the crosswalks. Look for crossing guards. Keep your mind on what you are doing. Never use your phone when you are driving around schools.

These tips can help, but you still face some risks when driving in school zones during the school year. If you or one of your children gets injured, make sure that you're well aware of your legal rights to compensation. It may be wise to consult an experienced attorney who can help you work to do that.
