As we enter the second month of school, many Atlanta area children (and their parents) are back in the full swing of the hectic school year. After school activities, sports, religious school and the myriad of other commitments that come with the school year, it can be difficult to manage and get everyone where they need to be unless parents team up and carpool to get their children to and from their activities.

While carpooling is efficient, is it safe? Should you trust someone else to drive your child? What should you do if there's been an accident in Atlanta?

Carpool Safety

Before you agree to a carpool, it may be helpful to:
  • Take a ride with the person who will be driving your child. Are you comfortable with the person's driving skills? Is the person attentive or distracted?
  • Ensure that your child will have the correct car seat or booster seat. If you need to show the driver the law regarding child seat safety, please feel free to share our free report: Our Most Precious Cargo: A Special Report on Georgia Child Safety Seat Laws.
