As summer break comes to an end and children in Lincoln, Nebraska and throughout the United States return to school Lapin Law Offices wants to encourage students, parents, teachers and the community to be prepared as we want students to get to school and return back home safely. This includes the remembering the importance of pedestrian, bicycle, driver and school bus safety. While the overall number of crashes between student-pedestrians and vehicles has decreased, August has one of the highest number of these collisions. In addition, older students now are in the highest-at risk for being injured or killed going to and from school. In an effort to prevent injuries or fatalities to students heading back to school, we offer the following safety tips and encourage you to share them with your children, family and friends.
