  1. Children should not have to cross in front of the bus. With a better system, they can be dropped off on the correct side of the street.

    This is especially true on busier roads. How many crazy “almosts” do we need to see before making this necessary change?

  2. I wish kids were being taught to look both ways before running across the street. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen children almost be seriously hurt. It breaks my heart. Sending all the prayers to this little boy for a fast recovery and his family, I can’t imagine what they must be going through.
