Orlando Driving Safety Near Schools

We are all excited for school to be starting up again! How about you? Do you have all of your supplies yet? How about one of the best used vehicles for back to school? Do you have your schedule and game plan figured out? That last one usually gets forgotten until the morning of the first day, and it can create a lot of chaos. Let us help you out by offering a reminder of Orlando driving safety near schools!

School Buses

When Should I Stop for School Buses?

Whenever a school bus stops and releases its stop-sign arm, you must stop at least 20 feet away in order to allow students to safely board or depart. Once the driver pulls the arm back in or gives you the signal, you are allowed to continue on your way.

How Slow Should I Go in School Zones

Most areas will allow regular speed limits, but will drop down to 15 miles per hour when children are present. Please watch for signs and keep a sharp eye out for any students who may be playing extremely close to the street.

What are the Rules for Picking Up and Dropping Off My Children?

In order to make the pick-up/drop-off process simple and efficient for everyone, cooperation and courtesy is necessary. Wait your turn and keep your “good-byes” and “I love yous” short and sweet. If you see other parents you know, or even your children’s teachers, do not stop to chat with them. A quick hello is fine, but save the conversations for a more appropriate time.
