Ralston Accident should never have happened
Original post made by Safety First on May 3, 2007
We should get safety fences at the drop off areas outside all our schools. Cars and buses should drive to a safe break in these barriers and there should be a short inner barrier at this spot to prevent distracted drivers plowing into waiting students. This accident has happened before in other places. We must protect our kids better. Yes, it may cost money, but so does restriping roads to supposedly calm traffic. This is one instance where the money spent would undoubtedly be worth it. Yes, it may make drop off/pick up more time, but safety should be our priority.
Lets get rid of all the unbarricaded drop off areas around our schools and make them safe!
