As students prepare to head back to class, the Alberta Motor Association reminds drivers and students to take extra care around school zones. Communities will see an increase in both traffic volume and young people who are excited to see their friends and get back to learning.

Eager to assume their posts, AMA School Safety Patrol teams are fine-tuning their skills to ensure they’re ready to help keep their peers safe. But even with these leaders of the crosswalk standing by, it’s up to all of us to plan ahead, slow down and stay focused— especially in and around school zones.
