People need to use care in active school zones

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I would like to acknowledge New Castle Police Officer Chris Fabian and The News for bringing attention to the issue of school zones.

I cross kids in front of John F. Kennedy Elementary School and it amazes me how drivers speed the way they do. I think they do not realize these are children in grades one through three. Some of these children are no taller than my hip, yet cars speed through at 50-plus mph.

I urge people to slow down. The zone isn’t that big, and if people think they are running late, they should think how much later they will be if they hit a child.
