I am encouraged to hear that traffic safety is being explored near our schools. If flexible scheduling is key to alleviating traffic, please be sure to include a CCCTA (our county bus service) so that route scheduling times can align with middle & high school bell schedules.

There are many schools which cant handle the traffic due to population growth, speed, and small width of street areas in front of schools and inconsiderate drivers.

Best approach to all is change State speed liming in front of schools for two blocks each direction to 15 MPH during school hours.

Additionally, as in front of Rancho Romero grammar school, do not allow street parking in front of schools for optimum school traffic safety during school hours.

This makes for better traffic flow as well as safety since many drivers just fling open doors with no concern for moving traffic in narrow roads or streets.

Simple change to drastically improve traffic flow.

How about having kids walk, take the bus, or ride their bikes to school? I understand there are circumstances that require driving kids to school, but is it really necessary so often? Just saying.....

JW: For what ages are you suggesting they walk? For k-5 distance is key and for most of that time they need a parent to walk with. Distance would make this option not so wonderful, same goes for bikes.
Middle school and HS, sure an option for more. But distance still a big variable.
