State police are reminding drivers to take extra caution when on the road as the new school year begins.
Police are urging drivers to support AAA annual School's Open: Drive Carefully campaign to help preserve the safety of children traveling to and from school.
The campaign alerts drivers to the risks to school-age children from motor vehicle crashes. AAA said car accidents are the leading cause of death for children from 5 to 14 years old.
The campaign begins Tuesday and runs through October 15.
