With School Starting, Florida's Beer Industry Reminds Motorists To Drive Safely

Most Florida schools opened this week, and the rest will soon start. An unlikely source is reminding the public about safety as kids head back to school: The Florida Beer Wholesalers Association.

About a week ago, Florida’s beer industry released the school safety video called "School’s Back, Drive Safely." What makes it different is the demonstration vehicle is a Bud Light truck. It reminds drivers when it is okay to pass a school bus, what you should do when you see a crossing guard, and how to recognize school zones.
