Speeding in school zones concerning to parents

Posted: Updated:

It's Tuesday afternoon, Wesley Stonerock and his son Sampson are waiting to pick up his daughter Sophia, a third-grader at Chester Miller Elementary in Saginaw.

He said you'd think with so many kids and parents out and about this time of day, drivers going by would be more cautious. But he said they are not.

"They don't watch for people crossing the road. To get their children because some people park over here because it's so hard getting in and out of the parking lot at the school," Wesley Stonerock said.

And he says drivers often zoom through a school zone on Brockway Street.

"40-45 miles an hour sometimes," Wesley Stonerock said.

And 14-year old Sampson Stonerock said speeding isn't the only traffic violation impatient drivers are guilty of.

"My mother called the police because there was cars in the turn lane just going straight and they turn all the way around into the other lanes. They did something about it but it still happens every single day," Sampson Stonerock said.

Wesley Stonerock knows people are often rushing to get from one place to another.

But, the father of two, said drivers need realize going too fast in an area with so many little ones around is a recipe for disaster.

He said people need to change their bad driving habits before someone gets hurt.

"Take another route. Or give yourself enough time to get where you need to get to," Wesley Stonerock said.
