School has been back in session for a few weeks in Middle Tennessee, and while most students, parents, and drivers have adjusted to the new school year, kids still face risks every time they travel to and from school. These tips can help keep your children safe throughout the school year.
If you drive your kids to school:
Use a booster seat until your child is at least 8 years old or the seat belt fits them properly without one.
Don’t let them sit in the front until they’re at least 12 years old. Front airbags can be dangerous for small children.
Ensure they buckle up on every ride, regardless of the distance you’re traveling.
If your kids walk to school:
Make sure they cross the street only at crosswalks and that they follow the directions of crossing guards.
Make sure they stick to sidewalks when they’re available.
Don’t let your children walk to school until they are ready, and never let young children walk to school alone.
If your kids ride the bus to school:
Ensure they stand at least six feet away from the curb while waiting for the bus to arrive at home or at school.
Ensure that they remain seated throughout the bus ride and that they don’t distract the bus driver.
Encourage them to let you, a teacher, or another adult know about any dangerous situations occurring on the bus.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

Have you ever been caught between a Hyundai and a hard place? I have, Ponce Law was a call away and helped me through the entire process. Very friendly staff who explained every step of the process to me and made sure I understood what was going on. When I got injured I didn't know what to do but I'm glad I put in a call to Ponce Law.

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
