Traf­fic chaos

Stratford Press - - News -

I agree with S Robert­son, who wrote re­gard­ing the traf­fic chaos around schools. If peo­ple don’t take more care, an ac­ci­dent is sure to hap­pen.

While S Robert­son ob­served trucks caus­ing some of the chaos, near my child’s school it is other par­ents who are the big­gest dan­ger in my opin­ion. Par­ents dou­ble park, park in non park­ing ar­eas, or sim­ply stop in the mid­dle of the road so their child doesn’t have to walk in the rain or cold more than a me­tre or two.

I wold love to see the lo­cal po­lice or a traf­fic war­den pa­trolling out­side schools to ticket every car that breaks the road rules in these ways. What is the point of teach­ing chil­dren the road rules when it is their own par­ents who so bla­tently flaunt them?
