Student Bus Travelers at Peril

Tuesday, 15-Februrary-2011 - Veghel - Since the removal of the earth berm and installation of two new bus stops along the Udenseweg (N265) between Cor van Schie and the BP gasoline station, a very dangerous situation exists at two large regional schools: ROC de Leijgraaf and het Fioretti College. Posted speed limit is 50 km/hr, but this is often exceeded. Bus travelers, younger and older, hastily cross the busy road without stoplight-protected pedestrian traffic crossings! I observed this today when I went to the carwash across the road. This is also a reason for students to cross the road--it has a convenience store for fast food and snacks.
