I'm one of...oh 5 parents...that actually goes to the bus stop with their kids. The other morning, this idiot comes to the 4 way stop just as the bus is coming to his left. The lights are already flashing, yet this idiot attempts to turn left and has to stop in the middle of the intersection because the bus' stop sign was out. YES in the MIDDLE of the intersection. I mean, come on. He had to know the bus was stopping when the lights were flashing.
So after the bus leaves, I'm waiting for one car to turn then I start crossing. I'm pushing Jackson in the stroller with Korinne holding onto the side. I hear, rather so much as see, this suburban nail the gas. A split second later, They slam on the brakes and I'm jerking the stroller back. My stomach drops and I screech "Jesus Christ!" The absentminded driver waves in apology. And as I'm just about running the rest of the way across the street, I'm thinking, "You'd better be sorry! Cause you'd be more than sorry had you hit my baby and Korinne. Well and me ofcourse.
It wasn't even her turn to go as she wasn't the first one at the stop sign. So had I not been walking across the street, she'd have t-boned the car that was going the same way I was walking.
Another driver that witnessed it rolled ehr window down and says to me, "Is she blind?" I said, "Apparently. To miss a grown woman with a child, pushing a stroller."
Before Justin entered the homework club, I witnessed several drivers almost hit kids that were crossing the street because they were in such a hurry. Is it ridiculous to expect drivers that HAVE to stop at a 4 way stop to actually stop? And to be more cautious when bus full of kids is at the bus stop? I guess I'm just that naive.
