School Zone Quiz: Are You a Safe Driver?
As students return to school, drivers are encouraged to pay special attention and take the Back to School driving quiz.
Our community needs everyone to drive safely and follow traffic laws. As students return to school, drivers are encouraged to pay special attention during school hours.
Are you a safe driver around schools? Test yourself. How many of these driving tips from the City of Hillsboro’s Safe Routes to School Program do you know?
1. Watch your speed. The speed limit is 20 miles per hour in all school zones.
2. Be ready to stop. Watch for people who may dart into the road.
3. Stop for people at intersections — and when asked by the crossing guard.
4. Stop (and wait) for school buses when red lights flash. Traffic must remain stopped in both directions.
5. Check your blind spots for pedestrians and bicyclists before turning.
Did you know all five? Thanks for helping students safely get to school and back home.
