Back to school

It’s back to school across many parts of Ontario.  That means drivers need to slow down on residential streets as they head off to work and students either walk or take a bus to school.  Younger students will be pretty excited meaning they might not be paying much attention to motor vehicle traffic around them.  Although many schools open on Tuesday for another year, that’s not the case for Espanola, Manitoulin and the east part of the North Shore.  School for the Rainbow and Sudbury Catholic boards as well as the French Catholic and Public Boards begins Wednesday.   And parents should remember that when school resumes for this group tomorrow, there is no early dismissal.  Meanwhile, various police departments will be monitoring school bus areas to ensure rules are obeyed.  For children under 14 in Canada, getting killed by a vehicle is the leading cause of death in this category.  In an average year, collisions kill more than 30 children and injure another 2,400.  Most collisions take place between 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. when drivers and students are on their way home.
