DPTI Media Alert - It's back to school - slow down near buses!
13 October 2016
Children across South Australia are heading back to school on Monday 17 October and drivers are reminded to slow down to 25 km/h and to take care around schools and school buses.
Motorists are reminded to slow down to the 25km/h speed limit between school zone signs when children are present, at school crossings when the lights are flashing and when passing a school bus that has stopped to pick up or drop off children.
Children can be difficult for drivers to see, especially behind a reversing vehicle. They are still developing their ability to judge the speed and distance of moving vehicles, so it is vital for drivers to be alert at all times.
As adults, children look to us to provide guidance and we all have a responsibility to educate our children about road safety. If you’re driving with children in the car, demonstrate good habits by ensuring they are properly restrained with a seat belt or child restraint, and driving safely at all times. Where possible, drop children off on the same side of the road as the school or the school bus to avoid the need for children to cross the road.
With children heading to and from school during peak times it is important to also remember safety at nearby rail level crossings for all motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. A train travelling at 90 km/h on a dry track needs about 420 metres to stop – twice the length of a football oval. All level crossings must be approached with care at all times.
