Recently as my granddaughter and her friends walked home from school into the entrance of their subdivision, a car with three high school boys drove past and started shouting things to them. They were afraid, and one of the girls left the group and walked a different route, which was very dangerous.
It is not safe for 12-year-olds to be walking home. They are 1.3 miles from the school, and they have to be at least 1.5 miles to have a bus take them
I hope and pray nothing happens to these girls, but it seems money is more important than the safety of our children.
Recently, as I passed a middle school, two children pushed the button to cross but started when the light was for the cars and not them. In years past, there was someone to help these children cross, but I guess we cannot afford that, either.
Is it going to take a child killed or hurt before they realize life is more important? They do not need to decrease bus stops. They need to increase them.
