Photo of the Day: Denver cops watching drivers not watching for kids on first day of school

It's the first day of school in many communities throughout the city, and the Denver Police Department is marking it by threatening to ruin the day of drivers who don't take enough care around junior pedestrians. The DPD tweeted the photo above and the message, "FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: Watch for kiddos -- we're watching you!" Good to know, officer.
