Head Up, Phone Down
When Headed Back to School
They Send How Many Texts??

With this knowledge, we need to focus on efforts to eliminate distracted walking - specifically walking while texting.  According to a study by The Nielsen Company, kids age 13 to 17 send more than 3,400 texts a month.  That's seven messages every hour they are awake.  Before your child heads out, remind them of these year-round safety tips:
  • Never walk while texting or talking on the phone
  • If texting, move out of the way of others and stop
  • Never cross the street while using an electronic device
  • Do not walk with headphones on
  • Be aware of the surroundings
  • Always walk on the sidewalk if one is available; if a child must walk on the street, he or she should face oncoming traffic
  • Look left, right, then left again before crossing the street
  • Cross only at crosswalks
Not Only Kids Are Distracted!

Drivers have a lot to pay attention to in school zones, too, and there is never an occasion that justifies using a phone while driving.  One call or text can change everything.  There are a lot of cars in the school zones at the same time.  Eliminating all distractions is key to keeping children safe.
