Wills Transfer & Jack FM Radio Back-to-School Message

 

With schools finally opening up again, WILLS TRANSFER  reminds you that school days bring congestion: School buses picking up passengers, kids on bikes are hurrying to school, hurried parents dropping their kids off. It’s never been more important – after such a long layoff for our students – that drivers slow down and pay attention when kids are present – especially before and after school.

Best wishes to all students for a safe and fulfilling school year from WILLS TRANSFER

For Drivers please follow these Back to School Basics

  • Give yourself extra time. Traffic is more congested, and your drive times may be affected.
  • Watch for pedestrians. There are more kids walking, riding and getting dropped off in school zones. Children may be arriving late and dart into the street without looking.
  • Slow down. Reduce your speed and obey the signs – speed limit in school zones and near playgrounds is 40 km/hr.
  • Stop for school buses. If a school bus is displaying flashing red lights and an extended stop arm, traffic in both directions you must stop. You may only continue when the lights stop flashing.
  • Keep your distance. School buses stop frequently – keep your distance and leave extra room for sudden stops.
  • Obey signage: no stopping zones. Don’t stop driving or let kids out of the car in a no stopping zone.
  • Obey signage: no parking zones. Don’t park in a no parking zone. School buses or other school vehicles may need access to these areas to safely unload their student passengers.
  • Drive safely.  Never overtake other vehicles and avoid U-turns and three-point turns in school zones or near crosswalks.
  • Obey crossing guards. Listen and watch crossing guards – and ensure you allow pedestrians and crossing guards to reach the sidewalk before proceeding. It’s the law.
  • Avoid distractions and focus on driving. If you’re on the phone, eating or sipping your coffee, your reaction time will be slower if a child darts out into your path.
