Louisiana Personal Insurance and Safety Update

Summer vacation is over and a new school year has started. We will soon start to see the signs of back to school time, including more school busses on the road, and back to school displays in the stores.  Now is the time to start thinking about keeping your child safe.  This is particularly true for kids going to school for the first time, or going to a new school.

Now is a great time to have us review your personal insurance needs.

  • Make sure your children know their home phone number, address, how to get in touch with their parents at work, how to get in touch with another trusted adult, and how to dial 9-1-1.
  • Remind your child not to walk, run, or ride his bicycle down railroad tracks. It's illegal and dangerous.
  • Teach children not to talk to strangers or accept rides from someone they don’t know.
  • If your children walk to school, complete the walk a few times with them.
  • Make sure that your teen driver understands and obeys all traffic laws.
  • Bright colored clothing will make your child more visible to drivers.
  • Bike riders should always wear a helmet.
  • Children should always board and exit the bus at designated locations that provide safe access to the bus or to the school building.
