Remember the feelings of the last days of school and the freedom of summer days? It might be a good time to remind boys and girls to stop at the curb of intersections and look for oncoming cars.

Recently, on two different days, I witnessed young people at Page and Forton Streets riding bikes down Page Street, north to south, and they cruised without stopping at that corner.

I’m hoping never to see what could happen in a case like that. Drivers, watch carefully. Our kids are too precious to lose them to an unnecessary tragedy.
