Hazards of Walking Continue

Once again some idiot jumped through a stop without bothering to look where he was going. Only today it was my son he almost hit. He was crossing the road about a half a foot in front of me.

This guy didn't even have the lame excuse of talking on his cell phone. Just too full of himself to even bother to take a half a second to check to make sure the road was clear before gunning the engine.

I don't even know what to do about it. I don't want to have to drive my car to the school just because some people are too stupid to check the road before hitting the gas. I have seen so much careless driving since moving to Long Island it's a miracle that anyone is still alive here. You would think though even the biggest (insert favorite insult here) would know that there are going to be kids walking to and from school in the morning and afternoon and to check the road before moving on their self important way.

Sorry for the double rant. Next post will be more cheerful I promise.

Wow, this must of been scary. I would of been so made if that happened to my little one. People don't slow down where I live either. I'm always so nervous crossing the road with my 4 year old. People really need to slow down. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment. Have a great day.

Hi, I agree with you, people must slow down more often. And please people get off of the cell phones, stop texting.......while driving.
