Speed Up! Kill a kid

"If you speed down Caldart or Finn Hill or Miller Bay or Lincoln or Kingston Rd. or any of your other favorite short cuts-there's a good chance your speeding could kill a kid. Kids don't know you're late for work. Kids don't know you have to catch the ferry. Kids don't know how important it is for you to speed just this once. Kids don't think about cars when they're getting off a school bus at the end of the day. Kids are busy talking to their friends, or skating or showing off their new scooter-they're not watching for you. The police, however, do care. Poulsbo Police are increasing their patrols around Caldart-a chronic speeder favorite. We hope that the patrols are also increased around other schools and short cuts. Better yet, if every driver drove as if a kid's life depended on it, we wouldn't need the extra police patrols. "
