School Is Back In Session Tuesday Amarillo, Watch for School Zones
There's nothing more exciting than the first day of school. Here in Amarillo that day has snuck up fast! Tuesday will be here before you know it and kids all around the area will be heading back to class. It's that last minute before the big day and sure enough there's supplies to get, clothes to double check.
I'm having two firsts this year with my little ones, My Daughter is starting high school and my youngest Pre K, Funny enough it never seems like you're fully ready to watch them go into that door no matter how many times you have watched it. You want to make sure that you did everything you could to see them succeed and do their best.
There's a few things to keep in mind now that School is about to be back in session. School Zones are back and there's also kids on the roads again.
Yep, There's a good chance that you might see an increase in police patrols in the areas around school zones. Slowing down isn't going to hurt you for a moment or two and if you don't the fines are pretty rough.
Don't Pass That Bus!
I don't know how many times I've seen this or reported on it in the past. But every year there's one car that runs through a stopped school bus with it's warning signs on nearly missing or sadly hitting a child. Not only is it a bad idea to pass, it's also illegal. unless you are on a divided road with a physical barrier, even then you still need to yield to crossing children
It's all about keeping safe, and just an extra look while driving could make all the difference.
