My heart goes out to the families of these kids, I am new to the Holland area and my son attends Springfield High. I know a lot of people are saying the kids should've known better than to cross the tracks when they did, my question is why were they walking in below freezing temps to school in the first place?! Also what is the distance requirement from the school to students' homes in order to be eligable for bus transportation or why can't there be some kind of requirement in place that, when there is a track located this close to a school (where kids are walking to school) that there be a bridge track or viaduct in place to help traffic flow and as a safety measure as well for emergency vehicles to get through in the event of stopped traffic? Let's think, this could have been any one of us' children! Kids make bad choices sometimes, but it is up to us ultimately to keep them safe!!!
