MAHWAH, 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 3-7 p.m., according to AAA.

The first day of school for the Mahwah and Ramsey school districts is Thursday, while private schools, such as the Academy of St. Paul, begin Wednesday, Sept. 9, followed by Don Bosco Prep Friday, Sept. 11.

Tips to remember when driving during the school year include:

• Slow down and be mindful of speed limits in school zones.

• 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.

• Talk to teen drivers about safety.
