Parking At Roosevelt School


#1

Does anyone else think there should be no parking in front of the play area at Roosevelt.

Have seen a few near misses with kids running out between parked cars without looking, cars backing up with kids behind them. Today a diesel pickup backed in and was running for about 15 minutes with exhaust drifting into the monkey bar area where kids were playing. Several kids were coughing.

I was told last year it was mentioned in a school newsletter and asked folks not to park there. No signs were ever posted so the area was not officially designated no parking.

This to me is a safety issue and hope it doesn’t take someone being injured for the powers that be to do something to make the area safer for everyone.

That driver is brain dead. You should give the driver a gentle reminder the next time you see the idling diesel truck again.
