With busy after-school schedules, most parents will find
themselves on the carpool circuit this fall. Here is some
advice to make the ride smoother for everyone:

-- Set ground rules for proper behavior during the ride.
-- Limit the number of children you'll take.
-- Insist the noise level remains down.

Don't let distractions keep you from watching the road.
