I dropped my son off at Summer School this morning andwas driving back home. There was a mom and daughter on bikes trying to cross the road so I stopped about 50 feet from the stop sign to let them cross. All of a sudden a lady pulls around me and keeps going!!!!

I mean really! I am stopped for pedestrians! If the little girl hadn't gotten across when she did and the vehichle had been going any faster she could have gotten hurt!

I have been in the bicylers shoes before, waiting and waiting to cross the street and no one stops. People are in such big hurries to get to where they are going, thats how accidents happen.

So I took her liscence plate down and called her in. Would you have done the same?

They should have crossed at the stop sign. Much safer. But people do drive like maniacs.

You are so right for calling it in Sara... I would have done the same.

I hope the police atleast talked to the maniac so she will slow down.

That couldve easily have been her child but some people do not think that way... just in a hurry to get where they are going :(

  • Inconsiderate drivers irritate me too! The bike riders should use the crosswalks for their own safety, but it amazes me how many people lack common courtesy when behind the wheel of a vehicle. Glad to hear the girl was okay.

They were crossing at the stop sign. I just stopped a ways before the stop sign so that they knew I was letting them cross.

Exactly! People don't think about these kinds of things until it is their child and then it's the most important thing in the world.

Yikes. I thought that you meant that they crossed 50 feet before the stop sign! That woman is nuts then! Glad they're okay!
