)-- Most students return to school this week. As they do, All-Star Driver, the leading driving school in the state, has a mission to cause a cultural shift in the way people act on our roadways. To help reach their mission, they are offering these 10 tips for all drivers to use when driving to and from class.
As your red light turns green, be sure to look both left and right before proceeding.
Many students walk and bike to school. Always expect the unexpected, and be prepared to stop for pedestrians.
Give yourself extra travel time. School areas are congested, especially at the beginning of the school year.
Never double park. It can block visibility for other students and cars.
Be extra careful around school buses. Remember, they are filled with kids.
Watch out for school crossing guards and obey their signals.
Never operate a cell phone while driving.
Do not stop your vehicle in the middle of the street to let someone out.
The beginning of school can be stressful. Be courteous with other motorists.
All-Star Driver, Connecticut’s leader in driver’s education, is a family owned-and-operated driving school headquartered in Watertown.
