16-Algona, (la.) Upper DCS Meinet Tuesday, Aug. 29, 1967 Schools Open, Drivers Should Be On Lookout Thousands of Iowa children are enroute back to their classrooms this week, marking the end of carefree summer days. Likewise, vacationers are at home from long trips to many parts of the United States. Iowa motorists must renew good driving habits that may have grown rusty during the summer months. The presence of the school buses on streets and highways will serve as a reminder that children are back in school. But this reminder may not be enough for drivers in a hurry. Added to the problem are the hundreds of kindergarten and first grade youngsters, leaving home for the first time, most of whom are unaware of the danger that lies just off the curb. Drivers should be especially alert for youngsters crossing streets and highways. The Motor Club of Iowa has again launched its annual "SCHOOL'S OPEN - DRIVE CAREFULLY" campaign designed to remind motorists to drive even more alertly in and around school areas. The local "School's Open" program is part of a national effort by the American Automobile Association and its affiliated clubs to curb traffic accidents involving school-age youngsters. They reported that. 40% of the pedestrians injured and 18% of those killed last year were between the ages of five and 14. The Motor Club with the cooperation of 52 police departments throughout the state is currently in the process of distributing and displaying colorful posters and bumper strips to help carry this year's safety message.
