The first day of school is Monday, Aug. 20. This is a reminder for drivers that they will be sharing the road with students and school buses.
District leaders encourage parents to go over safety rules with their children. They also encourage drivers to obey school zones and yield to buses.
Bus Safety Tips
In 2017, the Texas Legislature passed a statewide ban on using a wireless communications device for electronic messaging while operating a motor vehicle. Texting, as well as reading or writing email, is prohibited while driving in Texas.
Many local areas have passed stricter ordinances which completely limit any cell phone use while driving, so it is the responsibility of drivers to learn the laws in their local areas.
The safest policy is to drive now and use your cell phone later. If you must make a phone call or send a text, pull over. Otherwise, wait until you reach your destination to use the phone.
Remember, it only takes a split second for an accident to occur.
