School is back in session and Oklahoma kids are participating in many
activities which have them running everywhere. Officials with the
Department of Public Safety want to remind motorists to use extreme caution
when driving, especially in and around school zones and residential areas.

AAA and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol will team up to host a news conference
regarding back to school safety. This event will be held at Troop B
headquarters located at 9191 E. Skelly Drive in Tulsa. The conference will
begin at 10:00 AM, Friday, August 16th.

Please use the following safety tips when speaking to children about
pedestrian safety:
-Always use cross walks when available.
-Never walk in the roadway after dark.
-Wear bright colored clothing.
-Use the "buddy system" when walking to and from school.
-NEVER play or walk directly behind vehicles.
-Stay alert to inattentive drivers.
-Always use sidewalks when available.

In addition, troopers wish to remind motorists to be aware of pedestrians
and reduce speeds in school zones, especially during morning and lunch time
travels. State law requires drivers to stop for school buses loading and
unloading. Always use caution when backing your vehicle from a parked
position. Small children can quickly move behind vehicles and become
difficult to see for the driver.
