Being able to spot what is safe and unsafe takes practice. And experience is invaluable. We’re going to post a new picture each Wednesday and after everyone has had a chance to comment, we’ll review and discuss the findings.

Today’s pictures are from a real live issue happening at a local school. Those using the Park & Ride are entering the school to use the bathrooms and to charge cell phones while waiting for rides to pick them up or after they have been dropped off.  Recently, there was even a ‘take down’ at the Park & Ride by federal agents which was witnessed by the school.

For a more detailed explanation, read the following story.  http://www.wdbj7.com/news/local/residents-say-park-and-ride-lot-is-a-threat-to-nearby-school/25166184

From the three pictures below, you can see that the school is very close to the Park & Ride.  What do you see and what would you do to address this issue?
