As the new school year beckons, back to school safety is always on the minds of cities across the nation. But back to school safety in 2021 has more variables than ever.
A New Kind of Back to School
Many students are headed back to full time schooling for the first time since they were dismissed in March of 2020. Some cities are experiencing surges in cases that are creating added safety concerns for school officials and administrators.
But there can be one certain thing as the new year begins with all its uncertainties and concerns. Traffic Logix solutions can help you make sure the roads around your school are safe for every student to walk, bike, or ride to school on. Driver feedback signs can help keep driver focus on the roads and remind drivers to slow down and obey school zone speed limits. And flashing beacons can alert drivers as they approach or pass your school.
A Long Summer Break
Safe school roads are always tricky as the new year begins. Drivers normally become accustomed to less kids around during the short summer break. But now, with a break that extended for months and months, people may simply be unprepared for the influx of young children on school routes.
Most drivers don’t mean to speed. Yet many simply don’t remember to obey school zone limits. Bright flashing LED signage like the SafePace Evolution signs can help return driver focus to the roads. Your choice of flashing digits, warning messages, or strobes can alert speed violators, reminding them to slow down. School zone beacons are another great visual reminder for drivers to slow down for students.
So many things are unknown as this new school year opens. Make sure safe school roads aren’t one of them.
