  • I’m amaze that people can’t get off topic about the situation here. This happens too often. Anything you all are saying aside from your prayers and hoping all is well is irrelevant. Get with the program people. If you have complaints about law enforcement in hernando take it up with the court house. People are stressed out enough here… I hope all is well though.

  • i live two houses down from where this took place from the corner of where the bus stop is to the street that the kid was walking from is dark plus there is a slight hill at treehaven and pinehurt. and no signs that alert drivers that there is a bus stop ahead, and its not only a bus stop for high schoolers either there are younger children that get picked up there as well. this whole side of pinehurst is rough people are constantly speeding through there have been numerous accidents around here. and im sure the driver was speeding and possibly doing something else because how can you not see someone walking in the street if you werent paying attention.i am hoping that the boy has a speedy and full recovery

  • Driving on the roads is a privilege, not a right as previously mentioned. Cyrinda Craig posted some court cases that appear to contradict this. 2 of those cases deal with passport issues and the need to have them to travel in the US. The other 2 cases involve the rights of a City to govern the States authority of a drivers license. None of these cases state that driving is a right. Travel is a right, but is different from actually operating a motor vehicle. Just a note.

    it is a right not a privilege. It can be revoked ect due to not abiding laws and so on however it is very much a right DO YOUR RESEARCH.
    on another note I pray he recovers quickly and agree the walking so far to school and in the dark and without ample lighting needs to be addressed yesterday.

    • The cases cited refer to travel without restriction, which has been allowed throughout American history. What it does not state is that nay citizen may operate a motor vehicle. Big difference. Does this mean, by case law, that without a license, I can fly a plane? Or operate a freighter? No, it does not. It means that I may travel without restriction and that I may do so using a vehicle however it does NOT state that I am the one with the RIGHT to operate the vehicle. Again, case in point, I may travel by plane, that doesn’t mean I can or should fly it.

  • We really need to all get together and push for side walks to be put. I take my daughter to her atop every morning and yes there are a lot of kids walking and some of them you really can’t see them. Very sad. Let’s start a community reunion to enforce the city to plcase sidewalks.

  • As I hope that he is okay I also hope that the driver is OK too. I also hope that this opens up awareness to all of the parents and school age children to please be careful at where they are walking and standing every morning I see them standing in the road challenging drivers traveling on Landover Blvd .I have reported this to the school bus depot and they don’t seem to care.All in all everyone should be using caution.

  • My prayers are with the family and their love one. My daughter and fellow students all went up to the hospital after school to give their support. I too am from up North and the bus stops are all surrounded with street lights. It is way to dark out for these kids. Something needs to be done. My heart breaks for the parents of this young man.

  • my daughter catches the bus at 625 am and it is pitch black, in the middle of the woods no street lights – I have sent emails to transportation to move the stop 1 block over where there is a street light and can not get a response – I make sure to take her and sit with her, even if I am late for work, but most kids done have that option and it is very hard to see them when it is that dark out. unfortunately It does not surprise me this happened. I hope this young man gets better soon

  • Why can’t schools schedule their classes in the daylight hours? I never had ti be at school before 7 :45am. Why are these kids at the bus stop at 5 :45am. I blame it on the inadequate school system . I would never allow my child to stand in the dark to have to wait for a school bus. They get there before daylight and get home at dark! That in not acceptable..

    Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 11:59 am
  • Why not start school at eight am??…

    Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 11:43 am
  • If you miss The People’s Republic of New Jersey, then go back. You move down here and try to change things to fit your style. We were fine before you got here.
    Hope the young student is ok.

  • Nothing for nothing but traffic enforcement is a joke in Hernando County. The SO puts a sting operation out, gets the media involved and goes oh look what a great job we are doing. There needs to be strict enforcement, stiff fines and penalties and impoundment of vehicles. It seems the majority in Hernando feel that driving is an right, an entitlement when of course it isn’t, it’s a privilege. Either law enforcement by and through the Sheriffs Office, the Florida Highway Patrol and the City of Brooksville need to take an aggressive approach and earn a reputation not unlike the police in South Georgia or the State of Ohio. We have FAR too many residents, tourists, elderly and new drivers to NOT have aggressive enforcement. The craziness that exists on the Florida roads is reprehensible. Drivers need to step up and pay attention, law enforcement needs to expand its approach and get the job done. No excuses. The time has long since come for this nonsense on our roads to end.

  • I’m originally from nj . My point being there are street lights on all the roads up north. You really can’t see a damn thing down here on the roads early in the morning it’s crazy…Hope the young man is ok.
