Description

Every school day morning (7:30-8:00), NHC Sheriff directs cars into and out of Codington School. All northbound Carolina Beach Rd traffic is stopped to do this and traffic regularly backs up to Silva Terra Dr around 7:50. I understand directing cars onto school property (getting the kids TO school) because the southbound left turns fill up quickly and back out into the southbound lane. But, once the 'To' school traffic has subsided, is it necessary to continue stopping all Carolina Beach traffic for exiting cars? Seems like it could encourage more bus ridership if the exiting cars are not given such high priority...it is a U.S. highway and there are many more vehicles on Carolina Beach Rd trying to get to work at this time. Maybe the school could start 30 min earlier and this would not be as much of an issue?
