School Zone and Neighborhood Safety
At all times and in all locations it is incumbent upon a motorist to maintain an active awareness of his or her surroundings. It is especially important for drivers to be alert and responsive to the presence of pedestrians in or near the road. Accidents in which a driver strikes a pedestrian have the potential to inflict extensive physical injuries upon the unshielded individual. While this is always a matter of great concern, motorists must pay special attention in school zones and residential neighborhoods where children may be at play.
If your child has been injured by a negligent or reckless driver then you may wish to pursue a civil lawsuit to secure financial compensation for your son or daughter’s injuries. This can gain you the resources that you need to cover the cost of medical bills and other damages that have been incurred as a consequence of this tragic collision.

Areas of Concern
During school hours, teachers and other school district personnel are tasked with supervising children and are expected to prevent them from entering roadways or other places where cars may be traveling. But there are also other times when children may be on school grounds without such oversight. The following incidents or situations warrant particular driver concern:
- Driving through school zones, regardless of the time of day
- Driving in the vicinity of a school bus that is loading or unloading passengers
- Children riding bicycles
- A child crossing the street in the absence of a crosswalk
- A child retrieving a ball from the street
