Ranting over school drop off

I am annoyed, agitated, and still a bit angry.

So I am off and ranting again about drivers who take unnecessary risks during student drop off at school in the mornings.

Earlier this week, it was the driver who decided to stop in the middle of the street to let their kid out. This was a first. Other drivers pull over to the curb to allow their child to cross at the marked crosswalk.

Weekly, I see something that leaves me shaking my head.

Whether it be the driver who decides to make u-turn within oncoming traffic.  Or the one who decides to let their kid out of the car while other traffic is moving. Or the driver who decides to stop, say right at the corner of the intersection, to have their student hop out of their car.

Or the ones who ignore signs directing traffic flow. You know the ones who decide that the ALL CARS MUST TURN LEFT sign applies to others but not to them. They turn right anyway.

Their actions are dangerous, irresponsible, stupid.

Who knew that school zones could be so hairy at what should be the most benign time of the day?
