Everybody sucks at driving safely around schools, study finds

These days, in a world filled with cars that can read street signs, you’d think people might be cognizant of school zones and how to drive safely in them. But according to a new study, you’d be dead wrong.

Zendrive published a sobering study looking at how drivers act in US school zones, and to be frank, humanity might want to be ashamed of itself here. According to the study, between 2017 and 2018, there was no improvement in driver behavior near 60.4 percent of US schools. 30.1 percent of schools saw driver behavior get worse, and it got better for just 9.5 percent of schools.
