With thousands of children returning to school Wednesday, the RCMP in Nova Scotia is partnering with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and Safety Services Nova Scotia to host a back to school twitter chat with a goal of getting an A+ in safety information.
The chat will happen tomorrow, Wednesday September 3rd from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
What do I do when the school buses approaches a stop? What do the amber lights on school buses mean? Do I have to stop? What is the speed in school zones? Will the RCMP be doing extra enforcement during the first week of school? What safety tips should I tell my children that walk to school? Common questions like these and many more will be answered.
During Wednesday’s Twitter Chat, followers will have an opportunity to ask questions that will help to make back to school a fun and safe time. Leading the chat will be Cst Mark Skinner from RCMP Traffic Services and joining him in the discussion will be Mike Croft from Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (@NS_TIR) and Arminta Kennedy from Safety Services Nova Scotia (@SafetyNS).
