My rant of the day: school pickup and drop-off traffic

What is it about school drop-off and pickup of students that turn rather sane people into reckless ruffians who think rules do not apply to them?
Too often while taking my kids to school I see drivers disobeying traffic signs, such as turning left or right when a sign, and sometimes traffic control equipment, says not to. Or they are cutting in and out of lanes as if they own them and no one else is on the road. Or worse yet, they have kids exiting their cars and crossing the street in front of traffic in unsafe locations.
It’s dangerous and an accident just waiting to happen.
