Rockford Scanner™: Sources are reporting a concern for student safety at a local school

Sources are reporting a concern for student safety at a local school. 

A concerned parent has reached out and asked for police to patrol the school zones.

Because several students walk to school and use the cross walks, and numerous vehicles run the red lights near the school.

According to the concerned parent, the police do not patrol the school zones and there have been numerous near misses with vehicles running the red lights and almost hitting the students who are trying to get to school in the crosswalks.  This has been an ongoing issue for awhile now, and the RPS205 and RPD have not done anything to improve the safety of the students.

Below is a video they have sent us of just a few instances of vehicles running the red lights.

RED MEANS STOP!    Yellow does NOT mean speed up…
