Here in the Portland Metro area and across the nation, school is officially back in session! As a family company, we here at Sutherland Plumbing would like to remind all of our blog readers to please drive safely. Here are a few tips to help keep you, your family, your neighbors and your community safe:
- Carefully read and follow all traffic safety signals and signs.
- When in a school zone please take extra precaution to closely obey the reduced speed requirements.
- When in a school zone, please DO NOT speed-up until you are completely out of the school zone.
- DO NOT text, email or instant message under any circumstances while driving. If it’s that important – pullover to a safe place before using your phone.
- Even if you’re on a phone call using a hands-free device, please be aware that your attention is still distracted and be extra cautious while using the hands-free device.
- This time of year, there are many kids around, even outside of school zones and school hours. Please be careful even while driving outside of school zones and/or school hours.
- If in doubt – SLOW DOWN!
