Safety: T-Board study makes recommendations

By Tris DeRoma

Parents who have children attending the Canyoncito Montessori School recently got a briefing by the county’s transportation board on the results of the board’s latest traffic survey.

The board conducted the survey in response to a Nov. 2 car accident that involved an out-of-control-vehicle that ended up crashing in the school’s parking lot.

No one was injured in the one-car accident, but to many parents and school officials, the accident was just one incident in a long line of warnings that the school may need the board’s help.

Sandwiched between Rose Street and Canyon Road, school officials and parents have been complaining for years about drivers ignoring posted speed limits, as well as the fact that many drivers seem to be oblivious that there is a school operating in the area.

“Drivers using Canyon Road between 15th Street and Central Avenue are likely unaware that the Canyoncito Montessori School is located along this stretch of the road, and many travel at higher speeds,” concerned parent David Clark said through a statement he presented to the board.

During the meeting, board officials updated the parents on what the traffic survey outside the school revealed and what it means as far as their children’s future safety and welfare is concerned.
