Stop Playing in the Street - Keep Kids Alive!

A recent phone call prompts this blog. A resident was concerned about the safety of children playing in the street since this is a common occurrence in hisneighborhood. Speaking to parents directly has done little good.

The number one parenting tip from Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is to not allow children to play in the street - it is not a playground and puts both children and motorists at risk. No motorist wants to be behind the wheel and hit a child.

With this in mind, what are your thoughts about drafting "Stop Playing in the Street" ordinances in your town? Please offer your comments, and please be civil in doing so.


In safety,
Tom Everson
