    Was the bus turning right off Thornapple River because no one, NO ONE, pays attention to the no turn on red right there

    It’s not a question of “if” a child is run over, but “when.” With two ice cream parlors and park near this cross walk, and 40 MPH heavy traffic (much of it going 45-50 MPH), there’s no way for most traffic to yield to pedestrians. LOWER THE SPEED LIMIT!
