Remember children are playing in neighborhoods and the speed limit is 30 MPH.
Do not enter an intersection until there is enough room to clear the entire intersection.
Plan and take alternate routes to your destination.
Never place a child safety seat in front of a vehicle airbag.
Streets and alleys are designed for vehicles and should never be used as a playground for your children.
Maintain a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
Stop while school buses are loading and unloading children.
School zones are 20 MPH, and State law prohibits the use of hand-held devices in a school zone. Both violations are strictly enforced.
Did You Know?
Texas Law requires motorists who are involved in any non-injury accident to remove the vehicles from the travel lane if they can be driven. The vehicles should be moved to a safe location and the necessary information should then be exchanged.
You are required to use your safety belt in the manner in which it was designed to be used, which is shoulder strap over the shoulder.
You are not required to stop for a School Bus loading or unloading if you are on a divided roadway and you are on the opposite side.
If you double your speed, you quadruple your stopping distance.
