Parade marshal, spouse in harm's way

Johnsburg Parade Marshal


Cal Skinner covered the 9/11 parade in Johnsburg, and one of his photos that attracted my attention was of the vehicle hauling the Parade Marshal and spouse, Ron and Mary Ann Rich.

Wasn't there just an accident in McHenry County in which a kid fell off a tailgate of a pick-up truck and was seriously injured?

Do you think either person sitting on the deck behind the back seat would have had half a chance, if the vehicle had made a sudden movement and dumped them on the pavement?

There is a picture on Cal's blog of another convertible - that one containing Johnsburg Police Chief Keith Von Allmen and a McHenry Fire Protection District official. You'll notice that they are seated in the vehicle. Thanks to them for setting the correct example.

Maybe next year some tickets will be issued to drivers who operate cars in parades with passengers in dangerous positions.And, after January 1, of passengers like these who don't have their seat belts fastened. The law changes on January 1.
