    It’s so dark over there in the morning you can barely see anyone! We need more light so this stuff doesn’t keep happening!! Prayers are with the families, hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I have lived in that neighborhood for over 20 years and I always see the crossing guards crossing those kids over four lanes on a green light. I personally wouldn’t attempt crossing there on a green light. Wait a minute for the red light and then go. That’s how we were taught when we were kids. It’s a wonder it hasn’t happened sooner. It is really dark over there some mornings and just last week I saw the guard and a couple of kids only after he blew his whistle. Hopefully the kids will have a speedy recovery.
