Rules of the road are being ignored

Somewhere in the distant past, I remember people used to drive their vehicles. It seems like now that they just aim them. It’s kinda like if the right one don’t get you, the left one will.

If I had my way about it, I would have some brief driver education starting in the ninth grade. If the students have a general assembly or a pep rally, 10 minutes could be used at the start for driver safety. Maybe five minutes.

Since Phyllis Banks is so recognizable, she would be a good person to get things started, maybe something like a driver safety club.

I have noticed driving around Albany that if a school guard is not present, some people don’t slow down. The school zone signs are there, the painted crosswalks and flashing yellow lights. Some places have signs with time schedules. Please, follow the rules of the road.
