READER POLL: Do you watch more for young pedestrians when school resumes?

Cast your vote to answer the latest Victoria News web poll question

  • Aug. 28, 2018 5:30 p.m.

Since anyone alive began driving, September has been the month school returns after students’ summer break.

While we haven’t reported a spike in the number of crashes involving pedestrians and vehicles happening the first week of school in recent years, we wonder how many drivers actually find themselves thinking more about their surroundings as the kids become more visible around area schools.
