FARGO — The Fargo Police Department is reminding parents to talk to their children about being safe around vehicles, especially when walking to school or waiting for a school bus.
Fargo police responded to two crashes involving children Wednesday, Jan. 20 — the first just before 8 a.m. in the 2500 block of 36th Avenue South, and the other just before 8:30 a.m. in the 2400 block of 17th Street South, police said.
In both cases, the drivers reported that the children were either in the road or ran into the road from behind parked cars, according to police the children involved were not seriously injured, and no citations were issued.
In the winter, the morning commute to work and school is often dark, making it difficult for motorists to see pedestrians. Parents are encouraged to remind their children that it's not safe to run into the street, and to look both ways before crossing the street.
