LADOT Traffic Officer, Sgt. Raul Mazariego, spoke to a large crowd of students and parents about the importance of traffic safety, and how they can help to keep their children safe. Sgt. Mazariego emphasized the importance of being safe around schools, especially when picking up and dropping off their kids. Accidents happen all the time when parents are in a rush in the morning, and kids donít pay attention to traffic. It is important for parents to understand this, and to be extra cautious when picking up and dropping off kids at school. Watch the Road provided educational materials, which included notepads, pens, KidSteps safety brochures, and Watch the Road messages to all in attendance.
