TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Northwest Fire District is offering a few back-to-school safety tips for students and parents to remember for the 2014-2105 school year. 

Students - always wear a helmet when riding any mode of transportation with wheels like bikes, scooters (motorized or not), skate boards; ride with traffic and walk against traffic directions when traveling to and from school; 

Most importantly use crosswalks at all times - crossing guards are the best locations to cross; cross at traffic signals if available; assume that drivers have not seen you, wait before crossing until a driver signals or directs you; pedestrians should always walk on sidewalks when available.

Parents - Follow all speed limits through crosswalk/school zones 15 mph and no passing in the zones; take extra time to watch for children in high volume areas, they may not always stop at intersections (crosswalks, school zones and residential neighborhoods); never drive distracted, especially near school zones and schools; enter and exit driveways slowly and very carefully.
