When dropping your child off at school, remember not to stop in the middle of the road. Waiting drivers may become impatient and attempt unsafe maneuvers to pass, putting you and your child directly in harm’s way.
It is also unsafe to let your child off near a crosswalk since they will need to cross in front of your vehicle to use it. Passing drivers won’t immediately be able to see your child, which increases the risk of a serious collision.
Regardless of where you drop off your child, try to have them exit the vehicle on the curb side, preferably on the same side of the street as the school. This will minimize their danger of being struck by passing vehicles.
