Back to School Safety Driving Tips for First-Time Car Buyers

Kid On Bike Infront Of Black Truck

A new school year brings eager students donned in freshly worn school clothes. It also brings congested roads from loaded school buses to parent and teen drivers.

If you’re a first-time driver or car buyer who’s fairly new to the road, here are a few important safety rules and tips for safely sharing the road during the busy Back to School season:

  • Always remain alert when driving, especially in school zones and residential areas where students may be walking.

  • Never pass a bus if you're on an undivided road, especially when it is stopped to load or unload students.

  • Be careful when riding behind bike riders and watch for those turning in front of you without looking or signaling; children especially have a tendency to do this, according to the National Safety Council.
