The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a good reminder in today’s Opinion section:
With most children out of school and on summer break, now is an excellent time to remind drivers to slow down, and to remind children to be careful when playing near a street. In an editorial published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning, it stated that in the last three weeks, already six children have been hit in the Milwaukee area.
Drivers should watch their speed and make sure they are not distracted by things such as texting while driving, especially in busy areas where children are playing. Likewise, parents should remind children that when crossing the street, it is always best to cross at the street corner or walk in a designated crosswalk. Parents should also make sure that children are always properly supervised when playing near a street.
Best advice: just watch out, slow down, and do not get distracted or you could cost someone their life.
