Traffic Safety Around Schools
Happy 2020, everyone!
Have you ever driven by a school during peak pick-up or drop-off times? Try living near one!
For this first episode of the new year, I meet with San Dimas resident Lysa Takacs, who lives walking distance from Allen Avenue Elementary, and Allen Avenue Elementary Principal Debbie Grenier. While Lysa knew living close to the school might bring some unique challenges, Lysa shares about how the problem has worsened over time and some potential solutions she has in mind. Both Lysa and Principal Grenier agree that safety for the students, parents, and neighbors needs to be a priority. And perhaps, as a New Year’s resolution, we could all be a little more respectful and considerate of our neighbors.

Thanks, Marla! Hopefully this episode can shed some light to those of us who drive around schools during peak hours–and maybe encourage everyone to be more thoughtful in our driving habits!
