CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Parents and neighbors say a new pick up and drop off procedure at Pelican Elementary School is putting students safety in danger.
"Don't make sense to me," said parent and neighbor Shawn Lane.
Lane lives right around the corner from Pelican Elementary and his daughter also goes to the school.
Lane says a recent change in the child drop off and pick up procedure is dangerous because there is only one entrance and exit point for parent. He says this forces drivers to use neighborhood roads to access Pelican Blvd.
"Most parents are late for work, they are dropping their kids off and they just want to get where they have to go," said Lane.
Neighbors say since the streets around the school do not have school zone signs, drivers are speeding down the roads. What's worse? There are no sidewalks so neighbors say kids walking home from school are in danger.
"I almost had a lady hit me coming out of the parking lot because again, there are no school zone signs," said parent Douglas Donlon.
"They just go completely through the stop signs, it is not just rolling stop they just zoom right through," said neighbor Jan Angelucci.
