TxDOT Back to School Driving Tips-PSA
The end of summer means millions of Texas children are returning to school. TxDOT reminds drivers to be extra cautious as school zones become more active and be aware of school bus safety.
Here are some tips for Driving in School Zones:
Put away your cell phone. Cell phone use is banned in active school zones, and violators face fines of up to $200 in school zones where signs are posted.
Always obey school zone speed limit signs. Remember, traffic fines usually double in school zones.
Drop off and pick up your children in your school’s designated areas, not the middle of the street.
Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
Be alert for children who might dart across the street or between vehicles on their way to school.
