School Zone Driving Rules and Safety Tips

With school back in session, drivers must become extremely aware of reduced speed limits and safety rules within school zones. Keep an eye on how you drive.

It's also a good idea to teach your children their own list of important safety guidelines. "Safe Driving. Safe Kids" is a tip sheet available below to help get the conversation started.

CAN I USE MY CELL PHONE WHEN DRIVING?

Under current state law, the only acceptable use of a cell phone while driving in a school zone is one that is completely hands-free or to make a phone call to emergency services such as Police, Fire Department or EMS. This means that the entirety of the call must be completed by use of that Blue Tooth device. At no time should you look at or touch your cell phone while in a school zone (unless there is an emergency).
