You do not own the road. there are children and moms actually walking *gasp* to school. So when you fly by passing another car on a side road and hit that huge assed pile of leaves, you take the chance of hurting those utilizing the side walk.
Sorry my first rant ever...
I was walking my kid to school this morning and some b!tch gets rushed because the car in front of her is going to slow. She guns it and passes her. She hits the huge pile of leaves on the side of the road waiting for the leaf sucker to pick them up. She goes skidding side to side hits the pile again(imagine its a long pile going along someones property) and a freaking stick pops out and hits me on my face!!! not to mention my son actually had dirt in his eyes and mouth! grrrrrrr
***edited to add she was dropping her kids off at the same school. She had about three of them in the back seat.
