LYNDHURST, N.J. -- With summer closing and school days resuming, AAA reminds drivers to watch out for pedestrians before and after school hours.

In the last 10 years, roughly one in four child pedestrian fatalities occurred between 3 and 7 p.m., according to AAA.

Wallington Schools begin classes on Wednesday, Sept. 2. Lyndhurst schools will open their doors on Tuesday, Sept. 8. North Arlington schools will begin classes on Wednesday, Sept. 9.

  • Come to a complete stop and check crosswalks and sidewalks for children
  • Eliminate distractions such as cell phones
  • Slowly backup when reversing and check all blind spots
  • Watch for bicycles and make sure children wear bike helmets
