Tips to Help Reduce Traffic Crashes

Thursday, 27 July 2017

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division has some tips on how to help reduce the number of traffic crashes as the school year gets back into session:

·         Be aware of reduced speed zone times and try to avoid those areas during that time to reduce traffic congestion.

·         Take notice of bus stops in neighborhoods.

·         Tell your children to report any suspicious people loitering around bus stops.

·         Talk to your children about reporting school bus drivers who use their cell phones or have driving issues.

·         Remember not to pass stopped school buses.  This includes multi-lane roadways (Kingston Pike, Chapman Highway, Clinton Highway, Ebenezer Road, etc.) where there is not a median between the bus stop and traffic traveling in the opposite direction.

·         Remind young drivers as well as yourself about the dangers of distracted driving (phone, texting, eating, etc.).

These are just a few suggestions to keep you and your children safe this coming school year.
