By Senior Trooper Doug Cutts 170 Iowa State Patrol Safety Education SCHOOLS OUT This is Trooper Doug Cutts of the Iowa State Patrol reminding everyone that schools are closing for sum- mer. This means there will be kids out walking, bicy- cling, skateboarding and just generally out and about all day. Everyone needs to take extra time and watch out for kids and the kids need to watch out for the ve- hicles. Whenever riding a bicycle everyone needs to wear a helmet and obey all traffic laws. Bicycles are just like cars they have to obey the traffic laws too. Drivers, slow down and look ahead, scan the roadway. That means checking side roads and driveways. Look, look and look again before pulling out. Motorists put your cell-phone down and focus on driving. Please help us insure the safety of all children in the state of Iowa.
