|School Daze, school daze....|
Big issues I see are inattention (texting, other distractions), speeding, and making careless left and right turns into parking lots, especially along Bloody Lane (aka Diamond Drive) between Orange/Sandia and the Lemon Lot, where several cyclists have been hit by right hooks. Be careful out there, stay alert, scan traffic and watch for clues as to other people's actions, and take a Traffic Skills or Cycling Saavy class to learn bike handling skills, including instant turns and quick stops. That stuff really works in a pinch.
Questions? Contact a local LCI.
If you are one of the parents, why not try putting the children on shoe leather or bikes if reasonable, or if not reasonable, on the Atomic City Bus. Will help reduce traffic and cut our carbon emissions.
And on a lighter note or two...
