As our kids head back to school it’s time for all of us as drivers to be extra alert, especially near a school. Kids are excited (or not) and are not necessarily paying attention to where they are walking or riding or to what traffic around them is doing. And around schools as it is starting or letting out, lots of parents are parking or jockeying for space to pick up their kids and not paying attention. They have even been known to do dumb and illegal maneuvers that are dangerous or unexpected. So PLEASE pay extra attention and help keep our Rosemont youngsters safe so they can have another excellent and safe school year.
