Slow down, everyone

I would like to comment on the school zones speed. I agree 100 per cent with letter writer Anna Vajda and  her comment to slow down and watch for pedestrians and kids.

I live in Bridgeview where 128th is the main street. Drivers just don’t seem to acknowledge or care about the speed zone.

I have been the crossing guard at Bridgeview Elementary School now for four years. I volunteer to help the kids get to school. That is my payment – I get to know the kids and the parents of the neighbourhood.

Some days I get really frustrated with drivers that are: 1. On the cellphone and are not paying attention;  2. In a hurry and don’t care;. and 3. Lost and angry because they are looking for 116 Avenue and can’t access it via 128 Street  any more.

If you are a driver please use your road sense. Slow down in school zones so everyone stays safe.
