AAA Northern California Tells Motorists to Slow Down in School Zones

Posted on

A report out of Marin, California is the latest publication to tell parents and other motorists to slow down as they approach school zones.  A spokesperson for AAA Northern California says that, from 2000 to this year, over 1,200 students were killed between 3 and 7 o’clock at night, the hours just after school typically gets out.  That amounts to one third of fatalities.  AAA says slowing down to 25 miles per hour means a pedestrian has a 67% better chance of surviving in a crash than if they were struck by a vehicle going 35 mph.
