School Zones and Work Commutes

Published Friday, May 29, 2009 3:40 PM

Well, school ended in our county today. That means that from now until the middle of August, we can drive to work and on our lunch breaks without those flashing yellows! Don’t get me wrong, I am the first one to complain if someone speeds through a school zone. I recall at least one small child killed this year when they were hit by a driver while going to school. The driver was being cautious, it was just one of those bad situations. I just feel like Monday will bring a quicker commute to work (no buses, school carpools or moms toting kids to school). Yes, many will be toting kids to summer camps, but that is not nearly as bad as far as traffic goes in our city.

I think I like it when school ends because I go through 2 school zones on my way to work each day and it really slows the commute. I also time my business errands in between dismissal times so that I can avoid having to slow down during times when I am really pressed for time.

I just came back from running a few errands and it was so nice to be able to drive the normal limit the whole time (the kids all got out early today).

To all my neighbors, ENJOY!
