School Carpool Safety This September and Beyond

It's a priority for us at Steve Hopkins Honda to help keep you informed about what you can to do to make sure your kids are safe while traveling in a car, even on a short ride to school.

Now is a good time to get together with the other parents who will be driving in your school carpool. Clearly identify the carpool's route both to and from your child's school. Establish a set of rules for both parents and children so everyone knows what's expected from them starting this September.

Keep your car in park until everyone is properly buckled! Limit one seat per child and remember that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, any child shorter than 4'9" must ride in a booster seat. Always make sure children enter and exit the vehicle from the curbside.

Stop by at our location in Fairfield, CA and test drive one of our many family-friendly vehicles.
