Throughout the lazy days of summer many drivers got comfortable not having to reduce speed in school zones—but all that changed come late August or early September when children returned to school. With school zone speed limits in effect again, and busy parents and other people increasingly distracted, parents worry about the safety of their children when dropping them off and picking them up.
Though I have no personal experience with this, I know enough parents to realize that worrying is second nature to mothers and fathers. According to the Ontario School Zone Safety Survey, one-third of parents polled worry that their children will be in an accident to/from school. Are you a parent and is this something you also worry about?
Do you regularly or occassionally drop off and pick up your children from school? What is your opinion on how safe the drop-off/pick-up zone is?
Maybe you hadn’t thought of it in the rush to drop off or pick up your children in the provided drop-off/pick-up zone, but did you know that one-quarter of polled parents say that their children’s school does not even have a designated area for this? You may be surprised to see the results of Insurance Hunter’s survey on driver safety in school zones, which I encourage you to check out. The survey was put together by Insurance Hunter’s, which is an online comparison site for all your insurance needs, like auto insurance, life insurance and travel insurance.
