Don't Drive Into Classrooms
But what is the point of such messages? Presumably, it's a reminder that we should watch out for school children in the streets. (One has to wonder why we should be looking out for them on the parkways.) But if school is open, aren't they all inside?
Wouldn't it make much more sense to tell drivers when school is out for the summer? That the kids are all free to roam the streets? And that driver's ed graduates with newly-minted licenses are on the roads?
Unless, of course, you make it a habit of driving up and down the halls of your local school building. In which case, you are going to encounter some heavy traffic jams between periods.
