CAN YOU IMAGINE JUST HOW DANGEROUS THIS SCENE WOULD’VE BEEN WITHOUT A CROSSING GUARD!

THIS COULD BE DANGER TRAIN FOR THESE STUDENTS!



I witnessed a very disturbing scene in Fifth Ward Friday while stopped at a train crossing on Gregg street. There were several children who were just getting out of school and waiting on a train to pass by to get across. At the end I’m located on – you are able to see the children were held at bay by a school crossing guard. But just a block down at the other crossing without a guard the scene wasn’t so safe. In fact, it was down right scary. Several of the children at the other end were reaching out touching the train with their actual hands. This as the train was moving at an extimated 30 to 40 mph. It was very disturbing. It brought back tragic memories of young children being run over by trains here in the Houston area a couple of years back. I don’t know what more if anything we can do to make the children who walk home safer. Just the Insite thinking out loud again!
