School’s back!

With the new school year kicking off tomorrow, drivers are being reminded that school zones will again be bustling and that there will be increased traffic on the roads.

A number of students will be starting school for the first time, and drivers need to exercise particular caution in the vicinity of schools and kindergartens.

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) is reminding drivers that the speed limit is 25km/h around schools, and when passing a school bus that is collecting or dropping children at roadsides, even when travelling outside of a school zone.

MAC is also highlighting how important it is for not only motorists, but also cyclists and pedestrians to be alert when using the road in and around school zones.

It is also essential that parents teach their children the importance of being safe whilst walking and cycling to school and crossing the road.

Quotes attributable to Road Safety Minister Peter Malinauskas

Road safety around schools is everyone’s responsibility and all road users should be extra cautious with the return of the school year.

Motorists need to watch for children both walking and cycling on the roads and give themselves extra travel time to get to their destination if they are driving near school areas.

The 25km/h speed limit in school zones, and when passing a school bus, will be applicable again from tomorrow.

Quotes attributable to MAC Communications Manager Megan Cree

Motorists need to look out for children, many of whom will be walking or cycling to school in metropolitan and urban areas and slow down to 25km when passing a school bus that is collecting or dropping children at roadsides.

This is especially important in country areas with higher speed limits, drop off points with no signage and no designated foot paths.

Parents can also help prepare their children for the journey to and from school by discussing the importance of being safe on the roads and using designated pedestrian crossings.

It is important to cross the road safely without being distracted by talking with friends, texting on mobile phones or listening to music through headphones.
