| August 22, 2018

By Coconino County Public Health Services District

Drivers need to do their part to keep kids safe while they walk and bike to school. FedEx and Safe Kids Worldwide remind motorists to be extra careful and recommend that drivers:

  • slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods and school zones
  • take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs
  • enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully
  • watch for children on or near the road in the morning and after school hours
  • remember that children may move in unpredictable ways
  • reduce any distractions inside your care so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings
  • never leave a child alone in a vehicle
  • always lock care doors and trunks and keep keys out of children’s reach
