Avila St., cars should not be allowed to park along those curbs as it blocks

the view of traffic and seeing the kids walking. Many kids have almost got hit

because drivers don’t see them crossing. Traffic is from our parents picking

up as well as Indian Hills carpools, as well as regular traffic.
