This week, the Garden City Police Department and the Garden City School District helped launch the AAA NY 69th Annual School’s Open—Drive Carefully campaign by placing a large 20’ by 2’ banner on the fence of the Stewart Avenue School to remind motorists that thousands of children across Long Island will be starting or returning back to school. Garden City School Superintendent Dr. Robert Feirsen, Police Commissioner Jackson, and the AAA Traffic Safety Division selected this location because it is a highly visible area traveled by many motorists. In addition, the police department posted several large “School's Open—Drive Carefully” posters at select locations throughout the village. Commissioner Jackson states that the police department, the Garden City School District, and the AAA Traffic Safety Division distributed these posters and banner in an effort to increase the safety of all students.
Commissioner Jackson also commends the valuable work of the AAA Traffic Division, particularly, Director John Corlett, Assistant Director Donna Galasso, and Program Director Gerri DiSalvo. “John, Donna and Gerri are very devoted to making the roads safer for students and they work diligently throughout the year to assist the Police Department and School District in their traffic safety efforts.”
