Judge for yourself. Is this safe for our children?
This is approximately 1/2 mile from the railroad crossing that our children will use every day if this proposal is approved. The trains roar down this track all day long, 18 per day traveling at 60 mph according to the DOT.
You’ve heard the assurance from the District website that this same track goes by two other schools. What they purposefully fail to tell you is that neither of those schools has a CROSSING. Their assurance is no assurance at all.
We’ve all read horrible, tragic, sad stories about good kids who simply used poor judgment and it cost them their lives.
Many times in the last month the crossing gate has malfunctioned. So do you really trust the lives of our children to this?
