AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — For the 73rd year, AAA is looking to reduce the number of school-related pedestrian injuries and fatalities that happen during the back to school season.

• Always stop for a school bus when the lights are flashing
• Slow down
• Remove all distractions from the driver – put cell phones down
• Do not pass other vehicles
• Obey crossing guards at all times
• Expect the unexpected
• Check you mirrors before moving
• Teach your children the rules of traffic safety
