    PLEASE SLOW DOWN IN SCHOOL ZONES!!
    In today’s police dispatch, numerous drivers were warned or ticketed. Save your money, slow down for the precious children.

    Either way guys, just look out for the kids. Whether they are paying attention or not, doing right or not, they are kids. Look out for them as you would have someone look out for yours. Glad he wasn’t hurt. And parents, help kids learn how to see drivers who are not paying attention. One of my children walks home from school, and I try to make sure she is always on alert.

    Bikers Have the same Rights on the Road AS LONG AS THE RIDERS FOLLOWS THE RULES OF THE ROAD… The Rider is to Ride in THE SAME WAY THE TRAFFIC, IF UNDER THE AGE OF 18 THE RIDER MUST WEAR A BRAIN BUCKET (HELMENT)..

    As a public school employee, I witness a lot of scary things as I drive to and from work each day. I often see young people walking along looking down at their phones for long periods of time, unaware of everything going on around them. Drivers, please slow down and save the phone calls for when you have safely reached your destination.
    You never know who is NOT looking.

    Better advice from your mother would have been to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, always keep an eye out for children, and stop mouthing off about things you know nothing about.

    Child was not playing in the street; motorized traffic is allowed to use the crosswalk only when it’s not occupied by non-motorized traffic or individuals.
