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.

Front Desk USA is more than a pretty piece of paper

It means business for your business. With over a 1,000 hotels currently using Front Desk USA maps and tens of thousands being viewed by hotel guests each day, Front Desk USA is the, “go-to” visitor information guide for hotels. The maps are designed to assist hotel guests with questions they may have about the area around the hotel. Our maps are custom drawn to be specific to a geographic area. This means an advertiser can reach a specific number of hotel guests in their area. Front Desk USA maps focus on categories that are most important to hotel guests such as where to EAT, where to SHOP and where to PLAY. Publishers monitor hotels to ensure adequate inventory at all times. Hotels can order additional maps anytime at no charge. Now we have added custom  welcome website pages creating even more opportunity for exposure from additional marketing and promotions using social media. Just search Facebook for Front Desk USA.

About Front Desk USA:
Hotels have at their fingertips all of the information they might need to guide their guests. Our maps can answer almost any question a guest might ask the hotel staff about the area around them. Many of our maps cover large metropolitan areas, and our maps assist guests with making their way to airports, etc. The maps pinpoint selected area restaurants (EAT) that are family-friendly fun and which have the best tasting food in the area of course. The maps also include shopping areas (SHOP) and pinpoint pharmacies and hospitals, etc. Area attractions (PLAY) are also are pinpointed, like museums, golf courses and parks and amusement venues.
