With the school year just around the corner, you’re probably putting away your summer bucket list and starting a “back to school” to do list. Not only do your kids need new clothes and school supplies, but you might need to coordinate your schedule for carpool or get everyone signed up for extracurricular activities.
As you’re switching gears and getting back into the school year mode, it’s also a good time to think about roadway safety. Whether you have newly licensed teen drivers, who will be driving themselves or younger siblings to school, or if you’re in charge of getting your kids to and from activities, it’s the perfect time of year to brush up on some safety.
Road safety is a matter each of us must pay attention to. One single mistake made on the road can lead to serious injuries and even death. It is because of this that would-be drivers are obligated to earn their licenses, which also comes with a series of seminars, documentation, and training. In hopes that these individuals don’t make wrong moves with bad results, authorities push these requirements before making a person a licensed driver.
But motorists are not the only ones who are susceptible to miscalculations on the road. Pedestrians are also liable at times because of carelessness. Their cases also fall under the category of road mishaps and could also lead to injuries or loss of lives.
