Letter: Dangerous candy

I was in the Fourth of July Parade driving my 1976 convertible. Two pickup trucks ahead of me with kids were driven in a reckless way. They swerved back and forth so the kids could throw candy. There were hundreds of pieces of candy all over the road. And, of course with some parents’ approval, the kids ran right in front of me to pick up stuff. Candy is banned, but not enforced. Maybe next year there will be more safety.

If you want to give out candy, follow the parade by walking on the sidewalk and give candy to the kids safely.
