Traffic Safety in Alberta
Back-to-school traffic safety is the focus for September
Drivers play a key role in
back-to-school safety. Be alert and cautious. Watch out for children
and school buses.
Young students also need to be aware of traffic safety rules: POINT,
PAUSE, and PROCEED. Be alert at intersections and always look for
danger when crossing the street. Remember that if you can't see the
driver, the driver can't see you either.
Everyone has a role to play in keeping our children safe.
When you’re approaching a school bus,
remember these tips:
Watch for school buses loading
and unloading children, even if the lights aren't flashing.
When approaching a school bus
with red lights flashing on an undivided highway - you must
stop! The fine for passing a school bus with its red lights
flashing is $402 and six demerit points.
Always watch for children
crossing roads. Prepare to slow down and stop.
Street Safe is an educational program that teaches pedestrian, school bus and bicycle safety to students in
