Back to School Travel Safety

Authored by: David S.R. Parker Posted in: Personal Injury

New backpacks, lunch bags and binders along with the change in Nova Scotia weather are all signs that it is time for children to go back-to-school. While it is an exciting time of year it is also important to go over some safety tips with your children for travelling to and from school. Whether they take the bus, are dropped off, or walk, ensuring their safety is paramount. Unfortunately, in the chaos of cars, buses and energetic kids, accidents can sometimes happen.

Because children are still learning and growing we don’t expect them to act the same way as adults do. The standard of care we expect of them – or how they act and respond in situations – is lower than what we would expect of adults. It is important to go over some basic safety tips with your children so they can travel safely and also act as role models for their classmates!
