School is out and I think it is time to send a reminder to all drivers to be alert to kids, animals and other cars.
Let’s put those phones away, keep the car stereos at a tolerant level and pay more attention to what is going on around you. There is a need to keep your vehicle speed down to the legal limits. When parking, let’s park in an area that is legal, not on the driveway sidewalk where little kids might stray. Kids are in a world of their own . . . they expect everyone to see, hear and heed to their actions. Drivers, slow down.
To all these teens out of school: Be more aware of your surroundings when walking around using your cellphone or using ear buds to listen to your favorite tunes. This, in itself, can be the cause of many vehicle versus pedestrian accidents.
Here is to a happy summer vacation and fewer incidents. And, congratulations to all of Solano County graduates. Good job.
