Local Third Graders Address The Issue Of Seat Belts On School Buses

When I was a child seat belts, car seats or restraints for a child in a moving vehicle were nonexistent. I remember standing between my parents on the bench seat of the gas guzzling Chrysler as a toddler. When my daughter was young she could still sit in the front seat with me because cars weren’t all equipped with air bags. As time went on they became more strict until where we are today. Infant seats, rear facing car seats, car seats for toddlers and by law children in the back seat until they’re a certain age or weight. So, it has always baffled me that a vehicle that carries our children every week day for 9 months out of the year doesn’t have restraints of any kind, except for the driver.  While it has been brought up in legislation before, still nothing has done about it. Is it because of funding? Estimated costs to equip a school bus with seat belts is approximately $8000. Totally worth the money if it saves the lives of our children, don’t you think?

Are the Trains Blocking Roads in Superior Breaking Wisconsin Law?

Trains, trains, trains. Wherever you are in Superior, you have a chance of being stopped by a train. So heading off to work yesterday once again I get stopped by a lovely train. Now comes the choice do you wait for the train to pass? Or do you try to go around and use another route? But then you think it’s moving along quickly, only until it stops and goes in the opposite direction, oh good it’s moving again, nope it stopped again.

How Close Is Too Close To Park To The End Of The Street In Wisconsin?

Nothing is more frustrating than driving down the road coming up to a stop sign and having a parked car directly behind the stop sign.
