Drivers: obey the speed limit, especially in school zones. At 20 mph, 9 out of 10 pedestrians hit by a vehicle survive. At 30 mph, only 5 out of 10 survive.
Students: walking to school is a healthy option. To keep safe, walk in groups, wear bright clothing, look both ways at all crosswalks, and walk attentively.
Parents: encourage your children to follow safe practices; model good behavior yourself, whether walking or driving, and consider walking young students to school.
