My family has been doing business for over 40 years with Flaherty Insurance. They have always been great to work with, and always seem to find a way to get things done.

As the final summer month kicks into gear, and the season starts to wind down, we want to remind you of all the changes that come with the return of school.
At Flaherty Insurance, we know back to school time can get pretty crazy for parents and children. But even if you don’t have kids, it’s really important to be aware of the back to school season.
Quite quickly, after only a couple months of summer traffic, the roads, sidewalks, parking lots, corners, and intersections transform. Almost overnight, school kids of all ages emerge, walking, running, playing, bicycling, texting, talking, listening to music, laughing, and even driving.
In general, the back to school season means traffic and safety conditions noticeably change for everyone on the road and sidewalk. According to the National Safety Council (nsc.org), “61 children are hit by cars every day in the United States, most often during the hours before and after school, and peaking in September.”
In order to help ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable return to school and the school season, we’ve put together a list of safety recommendations for everyone in our communities.
