 my sister has decided to let her children. ages 9 and 6 ride their bikes to and from school everyday by themselves.  The only way to get from their home to their school is on two very busy streets. One is 2 lanes both ways, speed limit 45, the other is 4 lanes both ways speed limit goes from 40-50 depending on where you are. Yes I know there are cross walks and school zones, but still, not everyone pays attention. And my sister is being a lazy dumb ass. She even posted on her facebook that she is doing it , so she won't have to wait in the car lines anymore. banging head into wall

I'm surprised the school would allow that., where my DD goes to school we have very few walkers and the 2 places that do both have crossing guards. We don't live that far from the school but there is a 4 lane road and even though there is a sidewalk from the houses to the crossing area, it is just to busy and unsafe. Maybe call the school anonymously and see what they say.

If it bothers you so much, why dont you give them a ride to and from school everyday?

 one, I have my own kids that have to go to school. Two. .They aren't my kids... 3.. Im not allowed to drive, so I had to find safe alternatives for my children

I crossed the highway in middle school, there was a crosswalk, but of course not everyone pays attention. Not everyone pays attention on slower streets. Your point there? None.

It's all up to if the kids can handle it or not. I knew enough to look both ways and make sure I could get across without being hit.
