School is back in session, so there will be increased traffic to include school buses and children walking or riding their bicycles to school.
With that in mind, here are some rules for drivers to remember when school is in session:
Be aware of school zone signals and always obey the posted speed limits.
Eliminate all distractions when driving through a school zone. Children often cross the road unexpectedly, or may emerge suddenly between two parked cars, for example.
In a school zone drivers must stop for children and crossing guards at school crossings and yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a marked crosswalk or at an intersection with no marked crosswalk. Drivers in both directions must stop once a child or guard steps off the curb.
Never pass a school bus on the right. It is illegal and extremely dangerous.
When a school bus is trying to merge back into traffic, you must give the bus the right of way.
Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit http://www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider.
