Better Routes to Schools - Courtesy Delegate Eric Luedtke

Do I want better routes to walk and bike to schools? Yes!   Moreover, I want better routes for getting to the stores, to work, and to school.       

Here Del. Eric Luedtke stands near MD108 in Olney (video published in Aug 2017).   Both Sherwood HS and Sherwood ES are close by, but without a safe way to get to school, due to no sidewalks or bike paths, the students must get there either by bus or car.  Del. Luedtke states that there are a number of schools around the state in this situation and he would like to hear from you.      

Which schools have this problem?  

Tell him about your school.   What is preventing you from getting to/from school on foot or bicycle?  

Please feel free to comment here or send email directly to Del. Luedtke.

I'm too important for a parking space!

Here's what must have run through this drivers mind.
I need to pick up my takeout, and I'm in a hurry.   Instead of parking in one of the open spaces that would take me an extra ten seconds, I thought I might just park here which is right in front of a stop sign, on a crosswalk, and a pinch point for people trying to get in and out of the parking lot. It's OK, my time is way more important than the 20 vehicles that had to maneuver around me and probably wait 10-15 seconds before they could pass in the single file lane I left for them.

My license plate is from Maryland:
    A 5812
And I drive a nice white Mercedes.
