Springfield Improves Pedestrian Safety Ahead of School
Kids are on their way back to school across the country, and Springfield, Missouri is but one community that is doing what it can to ensure that children are going to be safe on their commute. With speed zones, crossing signals, and newly painted crosswalks in place, Springfield Public Schools has taken steps to ward off danger. They believe high gas prices are leading more parents to have their children walk to school, and these safety improvements provide a good example of how communities can use preventative measures to promote safety.
