The days have gotten a little shorter…the air is a little crisp…you have an overwhelming urge to buy a box of Number 2 pencils and a shiny new binder…it must be back-to-school time!
September is one of my favourite times of year but it can also be one of the diciest times on the road. With school back in session, there's a lot more traffic - and a lot of studious youngster walking, riding and getting dropped off at school.
According to a Safe Kids Canada study, the first two months of school are the most dangerous for child pedestrians - so stay safe this back-to-school season with these driving safety refreshers.
More cars on the road = more commute time. Your usual commute may be affected by back-to-school traffic, even if you don't live near an actual school. Holidays are over and the overall volume of traffic will be higher. So be sure to allow extra driving time for your commute so that you won't be tempted to speed to get to work on time.
