Safety paramount at this time of year

August 8, 2001

It's that time of year again.

As schools in the Tonganoxie area open their doors to students, it's time for motorists to be especially conscious of safety.

As drivers travel rural roads and city streets, they should take care to watch carefully for students. Children will be making their way to buses and to cars. And they will be walking to and from school.

It only takes one moment of inattentive driving to turn an otherwise-ordinary day into a disaster.

Children, particularly younger children, are not always thinking about the dangers the vehicles pose. So it is up to drivers to take on that responsibility.

Let's all make a commitment to ensure that the 2001-2002 school year is safe for all of the children in the Tonganoxie area.
