Back To School Driving Safety Tips

Back To School Driving Safety TipsDriving tips to keep kids safe as they head back to school.

How is it already time to send the kids back to school? It seems like just days ago that we were celebrating the start of summer, but it’s already time to put them back in class.

With the start of the new year comes an increase of kids on the road. Protect them by using these back to school safe driving tips.

  • Crosswalk Care: When you come up to a crosswalk, double-check that there are no pedestrians waiting. Kids are smaller, so they can be harder for your eye to catch. Be extra careful!
  • Read Right: In school zones, traffic laws often change at different times of day. Read all posted signage carefully and obey both traffic laws and your children’s school’s drop-off and pick-up protocol.
  • Stop For Safety: When you see a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, come to a complete stop and wait until they turn off to protect kids who will be getting on and off the bus.

We want to thank you for driving safely around our Carlisle’s kids, and the best way we can think to do that is by making sure you get the best auto insurance rates.

Keep Your Kids Covered For Back To School Time

Parent’s have some homework to do with summer coming to an end and back to school time just around the corner! Whether your teen just got his or her license or you’re sending your kid to college, you need to make sure you have the right coverage. Here are 3 types of insurance you may consider updating.

  1. Car Insurance- If this is the year your teen is getting a drivers license then it’s time to get them insured! Check with your provider about safe driving or good student discounts that can make car insurance more affordable.
  2. Home Insurance- If you’re sending your kid off to college you don’t want to fret about the stuff they’re bringing with them. Get the coverage your student needs for his or her expensive school gear with home insurance.
  3. Health Insurance- Back to school season also is cold and flu season. Germs are hiding everywhere on your child’s school campus so make sure you’re covered for all the soon to be doctor appointments with a health insurance policy.
