Hello. My name is Ed Lubowicki. That's me on the left along with Ernie
Scott. Program Administrator for the Lee County Florida Safety Department.
You know I've been trying for more than three years to get New Jersey
administrators up off their butts and recognize the seriousness of my
plight. But it took a little more than 24 hours for Mr. Scott to welcome
me into his busy office. And he listened to this 75 years young grandfather
talk about school bus safety with an opened mind. And you know what? He
thinks the idea makes sense! So much that he is quoted as saying
"this is an ideal way to help out their safety program".
He goes on to say that
"because of budget restraints, there are not enough inspectors
on the road checking on drivers".
Mr. Scott has over 100 busses in service and thinks that placing a placard
on each bus like the yellow one below is a good idea.
Rinker Materials have
over 900 of their trucks registered in Florida alone! Wayne
Benner, Safety Manager gave us permission to post this picture. Thanks
for your interest in our quest Wayne.
While visiting sunny Florida, I visited this company that delivers concrete.
Why? Because they are concerned about the way their drivers move concrete.
Well, as you can
see, I've been busy talking to anyone I can about School Bus Safety. I'm
beginning to think that the people in Florida are much smarter than those
in Jersey! How about proving me wrong!
"If I can save just one child's life, it will be worth it!"
Isn't it about time that our Senators get up off their butts and show concern
about how bus drivers "move" our children? We need phone numbers
on school buses. That's the bottom line! A simple phone number. That's
all. Isn't that worth saving even one precious life of a child!
