Summer Safety Bulletin: School's Out!

Posted on June 16, 2017 News & Updates


Unless you’re a school teacher, most of us probably don’t know how many school days there are in a year?  If you’re curious, most provinces across Canada have 190 school days with the school year typically starting after Labour Day in September and running to the end of June.  So as we look at the calendar we realize school is going to be out soon. 

For anyone travelling summer roads that means there’s a new innocent, carefree, but very precious hazard on the road we have to be alert for…kids!  Foot loose and fancy free for their two month summer holiday they often react before thinking… and unfortunately these actions can have disastrous consequences.  As drivers, let’s all be more vigilant watching for kids as we travel this summer, so everyone can enjoy an incident free, care free summer!!!
