Back to School – School Zone Laws

Many area schools are back in session. School zones in Texas have special speed limits and traffic laws that must be obeyed during certain times of the day or if an indicator light is flashing yellow. School zones are clearly marked by both the speed limits and active times. Watch for children and extra traffic. There may be  special speed limits and traffic laws that apply near school zones during mornings and afternoons. Cell phone usage is prohibited by state laws when driving through an active school zone. Exempt from this law, are vehicles that are stopped, drivers using hands free devices, or making a call to emergency services such as police, medical, fire or other first responders.

From the Texas Department of Transportation

More than a million children and teens depend on buses to get them safely to and from the more than 9,000 Texas schools every day. They also depend on motorists to know the law and drive safely around school buses.

Texas School Bus Law

  • Stop for flashing red lights on a school bus, regardless of which direction you’re headed.
  • Continue your trip once the bus has moved, the flashing lights stop flashing or the bus driver signals it’s okay to pass.
  • Violations can lead to a $1,000 fine.

Safety Tips for Motorists

  • Obey the posted speed limit.
  • Fines double in school zones.
  • Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
  • Watch for children who might dart across the street to catch the bus.

Tips for Students

Respect your school bus driver and follow these rules:

  • Stand far back when you are waiting for the bus.
  • Sit still so the driver can pay attention to the road.
  • Look both ways if you have to cross the street after getting off the bus, or wait for the driver to signal it’s safe to cross the street.

I don’t know where to make this suggestion, but it’s for your eyesight challenged guests...incorporate some way for people in the shower to differentiate between shampoo and conditioner. A giant S or C. It would be greatly appreciated!

62K points stolen from my account without any communication and now I'm being told I was loaned points! I was never told such a thing. I look forward to you reviewing the recorded phone call to confirm your rep made the error in the first place! What a terrible way to treat your customers. I hope the 62K points is with the negative publicity!

I wouldn't stay in one of the effn' hotels if they were the only hotels in the Country. I have received no less than 15 phone robot phone calls in the last couple of months telling me I have won a free stay ~ I am on the don't call list; hey obviously do not have any knowledge that that means DON"T CALL! If they are so short of clients that they have to resort to this harassment to get customer they must be in very bad shape. Over the past several years I have stayed in their hotels but I would sleep in my car before I would ever give them a dollar again, of any amount.!

A equipe do Hotel Hilton Barra da Tijuca provou sem INCAPAZ de analisar e entender o problema do seu cliente e tentar ajudar ou até mesmo resolver. Falta compreensão, falta flexibilidade de oferecer um crédito futuro em troca do cancelamento com 100% de multa, falta INTELIGÊNCIA porque um processo judicial numa cidade fora do RJ custará mais caro que o reembolso. O Hotel Hilton Barra RJ é o retrato do MAL PROFISSIONALISMO, do engessamento das regras igual às empresas burocráticas que encontramos pelo Brasil. Infelizmente terei que acionar a justiça porque COM DIÁLOGO não foi possível.

Gorgeous spaces! 😍

We love visiting libraries when we travel. #nationalbookloversday #bookloversday

Or Trinity College Library in Dublin, can’t wait to visit during our stay a Hilton Custom House!

Wow
