Troopers urge drivers to watch for school buses
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — With children heading back to school this week, state police are urging New Yorkers to support the AAA's annual "School's Open—Drive Carefully" campaign.
The campaign alerts motorists to the risks to school-age children from motor vehicle crashes, the leading cause of death for children from 5 to 14 years old.
Troop B Commander Maj. Richard Smith said drivers need to be extra cautious as vacation-minded children are apt to be less careful. Drivers should be particularly alert for children darting out between parked cars on busy streets.
