To the editor:
I am writing this letter because I am greatly concerned about the safety of children walking, biking, and skateboarding on Zion Road in Northfield on their way to the Northfield Community School each weekday morning and afternoon.

There is not a day that goes by that there are not speeding cars driving down the road, very close to the children who are on their way to school. The posted speed limit on Zion Road is 35 mph; however, it is extremely rare to see a vehicle traveling even close to that speed.
