Remember that there is to be no cell phone usage is a school zone, it is the law. Watch for kids crossing the street and remember that you are to stop for school buses that have their red flashers on and are loading or unloading. Just put your phone down while you are in your car. That text can wait, the life you save may be your own or your loved one. No text is that important.
