I'm working with John Muir Elementary School and have heard from staff and parents that the school crosswalks at Webster @ Oak and Webster @ Page are dangerous. One students was hit by a car this year (thankfully without injury), but the need for greater pedestrian safety around the school is critical!

I have observed a few mornings at student drop off (which happens to coincide with the morning commute). Drivers seem frustrated and drive aggressively to get to Oak St. Parents are afraid to walk their kids to school.
