Share the Road—A Friendly Reminder
Now that school has been in session over three weeks, we’re sharing the roads more frequently with school buses. Mornings and afternoons, carefully trained bus drivers carry their crew of riders from home to school, school to home.
With enough to think about in front and on all sides of their buses, drivers could use our help to the rear. 100 feet to the rear, to be exact…just as it says on the back of the bus.
To give you a visual, 100 feet would represent about 5 parking spaces. We found such a stretch in a road most traveled: Washington Street in the center of Holliston. The two telephone poles framing this photo (one on the left, one on the right) mark approximately 100’.
We wish everyone happy and safe travels.
