Sheriff, Schools and Others to Promote Transportation Safety This Morning

This morning, Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman will join representatives from the National Transportation Safety Board, Loudoun County Public Schools, Safe Kids Fairfax County, Youth of Virginia Speak Out and Virginia Safe Routes for a free public event highlighting transportation safety for school-age children.
The event will be held today, Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 10 a.m. at Trailside Middle School, located at 20325 Claiborne Parkway in Ashburn.
The event will feature demonstrations on school bus safety, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and child safety seats, as families prepare for the new school year.
Each year, more than 30,000 people are killed on the nation's roadways, and more than 2,000 are school-age. Motor vehicle-related deaths are the second leading cause of death for children ages 1–4, and the leading cause of death for children and young adults ages 5–24.
The joint back-to-school event will arm parents, kids and communities, with life-saving transportation safety tips.
