Rural/Metro offers tips to parents, kids and drivers to ensure a safe return to school
Buffalo, NY (August 30, 2012) – As summer draws to a close and thousands of students across Western New York head back to school, parents can help their children make the return smoothly and safely.
Buffalo-based Rural/Metro Medical Services and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offer parents these six school bus safety tips to share with their kids:
Walk, Don’t Run
Just as there’s no running in the hallways at school, no running to the bus stop either. Leave 5-10 minutes early so you’re not rushed and use sidewalks whenever possible. Otherwise walk on the left, facing traffic.
