concerns concerns are piling up around a dangerous crosswalk in vigo county this morning... we've told you about these concerns before at fuqua elementary. this morning, the terre haute police department is urging drivers to pay attention to the road, especially in schools zones. news 10's abby kirk is live outside the crosswalk on maragret avenue to explain how they've been extra patroling the area. abby? jon-- when school is just beginning...and school is letting out for the day.... "these" lights flash "red" ...signaling drivers to come to a complete "stop." so many complaints have been coming in from "bus drivers" and "schools" about "drivers" not paying attention....they say they had to take action. within the 45 minutes that i stood out here the other day... terre haute police wrote up "6" tickets for people running through the light "here" at thi crosswalk... "several" not even paying attention. in just this month, terre haute police have written "38" tickets during school zone hours. officer ryan adamson says they don't give warnings in school zones. parents i spoke with told me something must be done...before it's too late... < "if my kid was to walk here and he's walking across that road and got hit...i wouldn't know what to do." "it's sad, it really is sad that parents and other people can't even notice that there is children knowing that there is a school right here. that they wouldn't slow down even for a light. i won't let my child walk when he is old enough to walk by himself."> superintendent "dr. rob haworth" says the safety of the children is his greatest concern. his greatest concern. i'll have more on how the school corporation is taking action corporation is taking action in our next half hour. live in terre
