How can children be safer when crossing a street before and after school?

The following are tips to keep children safe when crossing before or after school hours:

  • never dart out into traffic suddenly;
  • use the crosswalk;
  • walk, don’t run (even when in a crosswalk);
  • look both ways before crossing;
  • don’t walk in front of a school bus; and
  • always use the sidewalk.

Knowing Georgia laws that apply to drivers around pedestrians can help improve pedestrian safety. Motorists will understand how to safely share the road by learning whom has the right of way in different circumstances, including when around school children in a school zone or bus stop. 

Parents in Atlanta can explore their legal options to take action against a negligent driver who strikes a child in a school zone or when loading or unloading from a school bus. Call Jason R. Schultz at (404) 474-0804 or fill out our contact form.
