Hypothetical skit exposes risk to kids


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Mark was driving south on Lea Street from College. He’d just fought with his wife and wasn’t paying attention to his driving.

Tina was playing soccer in the playground behind the Roswell Recreation Center, at Ninth Street and Lea Avenue with her friends. She’s in third grade. Tina accidentally kicked the ball out onto Lea Street because the chainlink fence behind the new playground doesn’t fully enclose the playground.

By the time Mark hit the bottom of North Hill at Ninth Street where the Rec Center park is, he was doing 45 miles per hour.

Tina wasn’t worried about any rules, she was a big girl, she figured she could get the ball herself.

This story does not have to end the way you are imagining.
