It is apparent that majority of the population in a school are children and only a few number of adults. Schools particularly are bombarded with many varieties of traffic and road signs for the purpose of keeping kids safe by providing as many road signs as possible to warn them of every corner and road.

Because kids tend to be very active and playful, they have the tendency to run around the school grounds while playing with friends or hurrying to get to classes. Kids are a playful lot and motorists should tread with caution while approaching a school zone and while leaving it. Avoiding road accidents in school should be a top priority for motorists, teachers and kids.

Motorists who get involve in road accidents that cause injuries and death to students will definitely face a huge lawsuit. Parents would most probably do everything to get justice for their innocent kids. To avoid this scenario from happening, motorists must be very careful when entering a school zone, while in it and while leaving it. Every corner must be checked and every turn must be cautious to ensure that no child is hit by the vehicle. School grounds usually impose speed limits to ensure that cars are not running at a fast speed to avoid accidents.

Aside from getting a lawsuit from harming a child because traffic and danger signs were not followed, the welfare of the child should also be considered. Even if the incident only caused a few scratches, the trauma it brings to a child can be very damaging. Accidents, even though minor, can cause fear to the child.

Moreover, and particularly in severe cases, kids who witness their schoolmate being hit by a car would also experience damaging effects. Kids should not witness anything that can cause fear and trauma to them in the future.

Kids who learn to practice alertness and responsibility on the road will have more chances of keeping safe while at school and at other places. It is a good idea to teach them how to read the road signs and react accordingly to ensure that they do not fall into danger.

Through the placement of significant road signs at school zones, motorists and students will be able to avoid untoward accidents. Responsible motorists should be able watch for the signs to guide them while on school grounds. Children, on the other hand would be safer if the know the meaning of the road signs placed at school. Because of the signs available to them, the probability of getting into an accident at school will be greatly minimized.
