Back-To-School Time Is Dangerous For VT & NH Drivers

As mid-August rolls around on our calender again, it is time for kids all over New Hampshire and Vermont to go back to school. It may still feel like summer outside, but autumn is just around the corner.

At the law office of Van Dorn & Curtiss, we would like to remind everyone that back-to-school time is an especially dangerous time on Vermont roads, so drivers should be much more alert in the coming weeks.

More school buses on our roads means more hazards for drivers to watch out for. School buses make many unexpected stops and turns, and children may be loading or unloading from buses at any time. Never try to pass a school bus when it is active and stopped.

Back-to-school time also means that there will be more pedestrians alongside the road, with children crossing the street and walking along sidewalks. Drivers need to be more aware of people walking on or near roadways in order to avoid costly accidents.

Car wrecks often carry a greater risk at back-to-school times, as crashes with kids have a particular tragedy associated with them. It is important that people do not drive when they are distracted or impaired, and that they keep an eye out to avoid bus accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, rear-end accidents, and side-impact collisions.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Vermont car accident, it is important that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The Vermont car accident attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss may be able to help you recover damages for injuries and missed time at work.

If the drivers of New Hampshire and Vermont make a commitment to drive safely this back-to-school season, we can ensure the safe roads that our children deserve.
