Tips for parents dropping kids off at school

Motor Accident Commission (MAC) is reminding motorists to take extra care on the roads as children around the State return to school.

Motorists need to look out for children on the roads, some of whom may be walking or cycling to school for the first time.

Parents can help prepare their children for the journey to school by talking through the importance of being safe on the roads before they head back to school.

Parents should stress how to cross the road safely without being distracted by friends and mobile phones.

Wet weather safety tips

Wet weather safety tips

MAC has the following tips for safer road use during wet weather:

  1.  Drive to the conditions, and lower your speed in cases where visibility is poor or roads are slippery;
  2. Keep a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front – count at least three seconds;
  3. Check your tyres – if they have less tread on them, the tyres cannot displace enough water, which may make the vehicle aquaplane;
  4. Check for wear and tear on wiper blades and replace them as soon as they start to smear rather than clean windows;
  5. Check your car’s lights and indicators to make sure all are working properly and always turn on headlights in wet or foggy conditions;
  6. Cyclists should use their lights during the day as well as at night, and wearing florescent and reflective clothing will make it easy for drivers to see you;
  7. Pedestrians should always cross at the lights and be aware that drivers could have difficulty seeing them
