Drivers, Please Slow Down For The Students!!!!
Original post made by Alisal Parent, Alisal Elementary School, on Sep 21, 2009
This morning, a student while riding a bike, was sruck by a driver. The driver was making a right turn from Santa Rita heading down Black Ave. The student seemed ok and the driver did stop and both waited for PPD to arrive.
As a parent who drives, walks and bikes my children to school, I have seen COUNTLESS "close calls" in this intersection during this very short 20 minutes in the AM.
Drivers, please, please slow down and pay attention to what you're doing!! Wait for students and parents(on foot or bikes) to finish crossing the street before you proceed.
Pedestrians and bicycle riders....look out for each other, accidents happen in a split second and if we all keep our eyes open for each other we can prevent them from happening.
