Both my children attended McKinley school when they were in grade school, so the following story is of a concern to me.
North Ave is very busy and many school children cross North Ave at 88th street as well as 90th street - both crossings have crossing guards, yet as you will read in the following story - drivers are not careful while driving on North Ave. Also remember that North Ave is a 2 lane road between 92nd and 60th street. Drive carefully.
I was discussing the following situation with a friend of mine (her son attends McKinley) and it prompted me to write this and convey what could have been a tragedy.
Here is the story:
"At about 3:40 my Mom called me from home and told me that my son had to tell me something. Once the phone was passed to him, he cried 'We were almost killed!" After trying to explain the situation to me I had him put my mom back on the phone. Here is what happened.
So please be careful while driving on North Ave - we do not need a tragedy!!
That is just "MY TWO CENTS"
