Kids Are Back In School, Drivers Asked To Pay Attention

Kids are back in school around Wisconsin, and Shawn Koval with UW Health’s Healthy Kids Collaborative is asking drivers to pay close attention at and around school buildings

“There’s students getting off the bus, there’s students crossing the street or pulling their bike in perhaps. There’s a lot of different modes of transportation, a lot of  different activities in front of those school buildings.”

Koval adds that drivers and pedestrians alike should stay off their phones in school zones, so they can give full attention to their surroundings.
