Monthly Safety - Driving

August is Traffic Awareness Month.  As school begins, there will be more traffic in neighborhoods and communities.  Here are some safety reminders for staff. 

When Out Walking With Members:

  • Be aware of traffic and use sidewalks
  • Use the crosswalk to cross the street
  • Watch where you are walking - put your cell phone away
  • Be aware of curbs, cracks in the sidewalk, uneven walkways or other obstacles that could be a tripping hazard for members

If you are driving:

  • Ensure members are wearing their seatbelts and, if applicable, all tie downs and safety harnesses for wheelchairs
  • Do not use your cell phone while driving.
  • Obey all traffic laws and speed limits
  • Be aware of weather conditions if traveling a distance
