People need to slow down at school crossings. In my neighborhood, there are
signs clearly flashing 20 mph, but vehicles routinely blow past them at 30-35
mph. Unfortunately, there are NEVER any cops out during this time.
You are absolutely right and it would be nice if a police officerw were assigned
to school crossings. Too often I can see them driving around and around, not
really pursuing anyone or anything and it would be such a service if they
presented a high profile near schools during times that children are crossing
streets. It would be money well-spent.
Great idea, but Cops can't do that!They're far too busy out
looking for burglars at 8:00 a.m. in the morning.
I beleive that if you apprace the Police Dept. in the right manner they would
put some crusier in the trouble area. My heart goes out the the girl's family
and hope and pray that she fully recovers. I beleive that people don't relizes
that when you drive that fast in a school crossing area you are playing with
someone's life.How did they pass their driver's test or the class in school.
I have notice where there are speed zones of 25 mph people drive 55 mph. It is
The driver was probably on the phone.
I grew up in that area and it is very rural. There are no school crossings and
there is a hill right there that is hard to see over. I have almost been hit by
cars there several times when I was just walking down the road because it is so
bad. I feel bad that this has happened, but I am not surprised.
This was at a bus stop, not in a school zone. She is my daughter-in-law's niece.
Sad situation. We don't know many details at this time. I have been a bus aide,
and I know that drivers don't always watch. However, sometimes kids run across
the street without looking, too. I do hope she recovers, but when cars and
people collide, the car usually wins. Our prayers are with her and her family,
and also with the lady driving the car. It's hard for her, too.
Seriously, accidents happen, and lets just hope that's what it was and not
someone who was just being an idiot. It's a bad situation all around. I feel
sorrow for a lot of people here, including the children on the bus who had to
her name is ashley
btw, it happened tuesday, not monday! Apparently there were other accidents too
and other kids hit, I think a lot of people are getting the stories confused! I
pray for Ashley and her family as they are very close friends. My thoughts are
also with the others that may have been invovled in accidents yesterday morning.
We pray for Ashley and her family My daughter was on the bus at the time the bus
came to the stop and sits by her on the bus what a sad thing accidents happen
and its still dark at this time its hard to see but we just need to slow down
and be a little more assertive.....
A woman that I work with, it's her daughter's step-sister.. We are defnitely
praying for a speedy recovery and for the family, and for all the ones traveling
to see her.
I will be praying for both parties,Especialy Ashley's family,I understand Ashley
did not make it.So we all just have to pray for them, for the loss of their
child,there could not be any worse than losing a child.
My Heart Goes Out To The Family I Will Be Praying For You.
