Don’t wait for authorities’ call

This letter is for every parent with a child at Placer High. If your child does not take a lunch to school and therefore must walk to town for lunch, then listen up. Please teach your child what they must do at an intersection with a red light for them. Hello! Push the correct button and wait for the green light and the OK to walk into the crosswalk. Once again, this week, I came close to hitting a couple of kids. I came to the intersection with the green light to continue across High Street. A group of guys had started across against their red light. I slowed, then continued, and then at the limit line a couple more boys went running in front of me. Do you want to get the phone call from the authorities to let you know your child was killed being stupid running across against the red light? Do you want to get the phone call from the authorities to let you know your child is on the way to the hospital with serious injuries because they were stupid by running across against the red light? Soooo! Teach and train your child now on how to safely cross an intersection. Then maybe you’ll get some grandkids someday to teach, too. SALLY PALMER DAWLEY, Auburn
