I am writing to express my concern regarding school buses picking up and discharging children from the day care centers in Kearny. Children are pickup up and dropped off at their day cares before and after school.
On several occasions I have witnessed children loading the buses in the morning ( around 8:00 a.m.) The buses do not have the appropriate lights flashing or bar extended.
Car and buses pass these buses while children are loading the buses.
I have witnessed this too many times. I witnessed it again this morning, and want to take action.
I prefer not to mention the specific location I have witnessed this at, in this post, but I have witnessed it.
I am asking that this be addressed. Perhaps send an officer to watch. The schools and day care centers (all of them) should be put on notice. I did address this once (somewhat informally) with someone from the Kearny Schools, but it seems that was not enough or perhaps the wrong approach.
I will contact the Kearny Police, traffic division the Board of Education , and the day care I have seen this happen at, to follow up, but I wanted to get this out there to ask the Town, Board of Education, and Day Care Centers, to help on this issue.
Thank you for your anticipated help.
