ENP STAFF REPORTS

With public schools in East Niagara opening Tuesday, the New York State Police and AAA are reminding drivers to be careful to help preserve the safety of children traveling to and from school.

AAA’s yearly “School’s Open—Drive Carefully” campaign alerts motorists to the special risks to school-age children from motor vehicle crashes, the leading cause of death for children from five to fourteen years old. The campaign runs through October 14.

Motorists will receive an additional reminder each time they see one of the “School’s Open” bumper stickers on State Police vehicles, as well as other official vehicles, school buses and passenger cars.

Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said, "As the summer season comes to an end, thousands of children will be boarding buses and walking to and from school. The New York State Police remind motorists to drive carefully and be especially aware of school speed zones, school bus traffic, and children walking.”

NYSP also emphasized the need to show extra caution when driving as schools reopen, since it is then that vacation-minded children are apt to be less careful.  Motorists should be particularly alert for children darting out between parked cars on busy streets.
