Police ask motorists to slow down and drive safely.
Huntley police have been out conducting a back to school drive safely campaign on Haligus and Scott roads near the spot a Marlowe Middle School student was struck by a car last spring.

Huntley police launch effort to alert motorists and pedestrians to be careful at Haligus Road and Scott Drive where a car struck a 12-year-old.

Michelle learned just how dangerous it is one spring morning when she received a call from Marlowe staff telling her that her 12-year-old son, Nick, had been in an accident.

Thursday, Huntley police will launch a public awareness campaign to remind motorist and pedestrians to be careful. “My hope would be they make it safer to be there,” said Michelle, who asked her family’s last name not be used.

Saturday, April 28, 2012
Parents were successful last fall in changing speed limit but safety remains a concern.
Last fall, parents asked the village of Huntley to help make the intersection of Haligus and Scott roads safer for school children.
