With the summer months approaching and the school year coming to a close, we will begin to see an increased number of children playing outside and just moving about Kingwood in general.
With that in mind, drivers are reminded to slow down, especially around parks and playgrounds. And pay careful attention to anyone near the roadway. Children are more difficult to see and less predictable than adults.
This is also a perfect opportunity for parents to talk with their children about road safety. A common concept to share with kids is...
- STOP before crossing the street.
- LOOK left and right for oncoming vehicles and keep looking as they cross
- LISTEN for any vehicles that you may not be able to see.
Enjoy your summer, everyone...But do it as safely as possible!
