So, drive carefully.
• It’s not cool to speed through a neighborhood, especially one which has children walking to school, going to bus stops, and biking to the parks. Drive cool, not fast.
• Set an example for the student drivers and others driving through the community. Drive at or below the speed limit and always yield to pedestrians.
• If you’re a parent of a student driver, remind them to drive responsibly.
• The best “power trip” is a fast jog or walk through the neighborhood, it’s not speeding or tailgating other drivers to pressure them to speed up.
• If you see someone driving recklessly or you experience road rage, call 911.
