Ask the Chief
Time to start thinking about back to school and what that means for traffic safety. One of the most dangerous things a student does is walk or ride a bike to and from school.
Every year children are hit by cars while walking/riding in the roadway or crossing the street. It doesn’t matter who's at fault the result is the same. Lives will be changed forever.
Please start thinking about the route your drive and where you may encounter kids heading to school. If you are a parent, it would be a good idea to talk to your kids about safety and how they walk or ride to school.
I have seen parents do a couple of practice runs before school starts so that the child becomes familiar with their surroundings. A little preparation and planning may save a life.
