School’s back in session, drive with caution

Traffic patterns and peak travel times can change as drivers alter daily routines once school is back in session. Normal “rush hour” traffic may start a little sooner as parents start their drives earlier to accommodate school zones, bus stops and lines of cars at schools. The usual off-peak travel times also may be a little more crowded.

The beginning of a new high school year also brings more inexperienced drivers to the road.  Plan to be more cautious as the school day starts and ends (typically 7:15-9 a.m. and 2:45-5 p.m.) especially in marked school zones.

School starts this Monday for most districts in the area.
