AAA: School’s Open – Drive Carefully

Posted on August 23, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

Tips & Suggestions for Drivers as Summer Ends, School Begins


As children return to school, AAA East Central has launched its annual School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign. The campaign aims to encourage parents to talk about the importance of school zone safety with their children and teen drivers. It also advises motorists to take extra caution when traveling through school zones or near school buses.

“School zone speed limits, AAA School Safety Patrollers and crossing guards are in place to save lives,” said Terri Rae Anthony, safety advisor for AAA East Central. “Since children can move quickly and cross the road unexpectedly, it is important to obey speed limits and be ready to stop at a moment’s notice.”

Speed is a crucial factor in protecting the lives of students as they make their way to class. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 20 mph is about two-thirds less likely to be killed as compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 30 mph. Moreover, nearly 1-in-5 children 14 and younger who die in traffic crashes are pedestrians.

In addition to slowing down, AAA offers the following advice for motorists to keep children safe as they navigate their way through school zones:

Ditch distractions. Research shows that glancing away from the road for just two seconds doubles the chances of crashing.
Stay alert. Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods. Mind vehicle blind spots, check for children on the sidewalk, in the driveway, and around the vehicle before slowly backing up.
Brake for buses. It may be tempting to drive around a stopped school bus, but not only is it dangerous – it is against the law.
Watch for bikes. Children on bicycles are often unpredictable, so expect the unexpected. Motorists should slow down and allow at least three feet of passing distance between their vehicle and bicyclists.
Plan ahead. Leave early and build in extra time for congestion. If possible, modify routes to avoid school zones.
Look for AAA School Safety Patrollers. With more than 600,000 AAA School Safety Patrollers at 31,000 schools across the country, patrollers are a sure sign that school zone is approaching.

About the AAA’s School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign:
The campaign was launched nationally in 1946 to help reduce the number of school-related pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The campaign kicks off each fall and continues throughout the school year to remind motorists to watch out for children as they travel to and from school.

We Spent The Week At Cedar Point

Posted on August 16, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide Amusement Park Cedar Point

We really enjoyed our time at Cedar Point, this week.  There’s so much to do, and our kids had a blast!  We enjoy it, every time we visit Cedar Point.  We stayed at Hotel Breakers, and enjoyed the beach, as well.  The waves were high, but Jacob didn’t care, we went out in the lake, and had a good time.  While Sarah, and my wife, sat on the beach to watch.

We started out slow, on the old time cars, and rode the train.  We went to Forbidden Frontier and panned for gems, which the kids really loved!  We walked and walked the park, until we couldn’t walk anymore.  I went on the Maverick, with my daughter, which was a blast.  The Gemini was another great ride.  The Gate Keeper was fun too!  Now I understand why Cedar Point is called, “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World”.

We sat and watched Vertical Impact, and it was amazing.  Watching the dancers, athletes, and more.  The show lasted about 25 minutes, and it gave us a break from walking through the park.  My wife said her fitbit never saw so many steps!

We ate at Hugo’s, which is a little Italian restaurant that was fabulous.  I had a Pepperoni Stromboli, and it was to die for.  We even got special cups from a vendor, where we could get cheap refills our entire stay.

The beach was a blast, and all the fun games they had set up for Cedar Point Nights.  The bands were excellent, too.  We really enjoyed listening to the Rock Bands, which one played Jacob’s favorite song, “Living On A Prayer”.  Listening to the music was great.  We could even hear it in our hotel room.

You can’t stay at Cedar Point, without staying at Hotel Breakers.  We really enjoyed our hotel stay, and ate at Perkins twice, and Starbucks, for coffee, as well.  Domino’s delivered pizza to our room, in less than 20 minutes.
