School Is Back In Session - Take Greater Care When Driving!

School is back in session in Pasco County, Florida. And we are not alone. Most of the districts in Florida will be starting their school years if they have not already done so. No doubt the same is true around the United States.

This means there will be more buses on the roads and lots of students waiting to get on or off them. So keep alert and perhaps add a few minutes to the time you need to get to work.

Our children are our future, and we certainly do not want to have any accidents occur. So go slow, be watchful, and obey the traffic laws as they pertain to school buses and school zones.

From a practical point, if you do not, the fines you could receive will likely be very persuasive. Several hundreds of dollars down the drain have a way of convincing you to drive with more care around schools and school buses. Not to mention the mandatory drivers safety classes you might be required to attend. So drive with extra care now that the schools are open around the country!
