A traffic congestion problem that caused worries about the safety of students at Bester Elementary School last year was practically eliminated Monday when officials opened a new loading zone at the school.
Parents typically crowded into the busy Memorial Boulevard school in the morning and afternoon. When the parking lot became snarled by autos, children hopped from their cars and darted through the traffic.
"Every day, I would get home and say, `I don't know how a kid didn't get hurt,'" said parent Dodie Green, who complained to school officials about the problem.
