Some students who attend Brandywine Schools that live within a mile of that school, are being asked to walk.
Their parents aren’t happy about that.
The complaint is that cars in the area of Brandywine Middle and High Schools typically ignore the 35 mile-per-hour posted speed limit. ABC 57 reports the area lacks sidewalks, lights, or a safe place to walk.
There are also reportedly high weeds that keep students in the street as they hike to school. And worst of all…winter is coming.
Students will be forced to walk in a snow bank, or on snowy or icy roads with vehicles that will find themselves unable to stop from hitting them. Superintendent Karen Weimer says a walking audit targeting areas to improve the safety standards is a priority, and is underway.
