Many need to brush up on speed limits near schools

The pandemic made it easy to forget the sounds and traffic of school zones because many school campuses were closed for a year. School zones limit speeds to 20 mph, but every day I am seeing cars speeding at 4 5mph through these flashing zones.

Recently, the students speeding on Wetmore Avenue between Everett High buildings were driving way too fast, then got mad at a driver on 24th who stopped in time to avoid them. I don’t know what driving schools are teaching students but it would be a good thing to see some enforcement in this area.

I am seeing pedestrians have to jump out of the way because cars are driving recklessly fast. A little less attitude and more following the rules of the road would be a good thing. It might save a life.
