Nearly every driver understands that it is dangerous to get behind the wheel if you've been drinking - your reaction time is lagged, your motor skills are shot and your brain can't stay focused on driving.
The first few days of the school year are often a very hectic time. Parents and children both have to learn a new routine, especially if a new school is involved. When driving into a school zone during that first week, drivers pay close attention to their surroundings. Unfortunately, as the year becomes more routine, it can be easy to lose focus when driving near a school or school bus. This short lapse in concentration can result in serious injuries or death if an accident results.
