Car Pool Tips

Summer is coming to an end and school is right around the corner! Do you plan on carpooling this year? Here’s what to be ready for.

  1. Make a carpool schedule. Are you picking up? Are you dropping off? Make sure you are aware of day to day carpooling schedules. Make sure nobody gets left behind!
  2. Take your vehicle in for a routine maintenance checkup. Keeping your vehicle on the road is important to us at Bennett’s Automotive. Let us help check your fluids, filters and tires. When carpooling, your vehicle may be working overtime from quick trips, heavily trafficked areas, and extended idling.
  3. Go over the importance of seatbelt safety. Make sure you are always wearing your seatbelt. Make sure the kiddos are buckled up as well. When they see the adult following the rules, they are more than likely to do the same.
  4. Go over drop off and pick up procedures. Crossing guards should be stationed around the drop off/ pick up area to guide children and cars in the right direction. Be sure that your children are aware of the crossing guard, where to properly cross traffic and to always look both ways. Try to stick with the same pick up line and as always, make sure the kiddos know who will be picking them up after school.
  5. Be prepared for fall showers. Nobody enjoys driving in torrential downpours but it definitely helps when you have smooth wiper blades and good tire traction.

Number one rule of safety: stay off your cell phone while driving! Children’s safety is the upmost important.
