The South Carolina Highway Patrol is urging drivers to keep an eye out for children as they head back to bus stops and school buildings.

Historically, the majority of collisions around schools occur during the 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. time frames, troopers say.

Motorists should expect to see an increased law enforcement presence, especially from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., when children will be going to and from school.
