Safety For Our Children Informative - Red Light Cameras
I would like to suggest to all those companies that make our lives safer with there invention of red light cameras to consider a good cause and help with a problem at my child's elementary school.
Drivers leaving school after picking up there kids on campus must drive threw a cross-walk filled with children walking home from school. Often, far too often many drivers, in a hurry or distracted, do not see the kids crossing and many near misses have occurred.
I myself have yelled at the drivers too slow down and watch out as I have had several close calls, walking my kids cross the street .
The school has a crossing guard but the drivers rarely pay attention to them !
Our school has no traffic light as it is in a non - business ( residential ) neighborhood .
SO I have this idea what if a red light camera was installed to watch this intersection, but instead of being connected to a fixed traffic light, a temporary light controlled by school officials ( personal) rolled out into the intersection at school time ( morning and school end of day ) and connected via wireless internet connection could solve this problem.
After drivers received a ticket, I'm sure it would make them pay attention to other children and not to be distracted ! The school would not have to pay for the camera, which they would like I'm sure, and the city and your company make money!!!
The children coming and going from school are safe and all community would benefit.
So that's my big idea - tell me what you think ?
