Ummm.. this is why accidents happen..

On my way to pick up ds from school I walk a long stretch of road. 40 mph and no sidewalks so basically the cars fly by there. Across the street a lady comes out from a house pushing a maybe one year old in a stroller. She stops right at the edge of the road and LEAVES THE STROLLER THERE! She goes back inside to get another older kid and he was screaming and whailing because I guess he didnt want to go. But omg the trucks and cars are just flying by the stroller! I was about to call the cops and chew this idiot out right there! She just walked out and grabbed the stroller and goes on her merry little way. Thats one.

On my way back in the intersection there were these two girls, couldnt be past 11 yr olds. They proceeded to cross the street on a red light. The school bus almost hit them and the driver beeped and they got scared but just laughed it off. As soon as it passed they tried to cross again and cars were comming! They were about to cross again and I told them "Hey dont cross on a red light a car is going to hit you!" just then another car beeped at them and the driver was signaling them to stop. And the little brats just rolled their eyes at me.

I know some accidents are just that, accidents. But in some cases I think they are preventable with common sense and being cautious.

So scary! Kids need to learn the proper way to cross & no way would I leave my baby alone outside for any length of time!

That is just crazy.. why could she get both kids out at the same time. OR why did she have to walk to stroller to the street?

Sadly around here many of them are preventable. In my town there ISNT a lot of common sense going on. A lot of damn stupid.

But i do know some addicents happen though and i feel bad for those

holy shit.... pardon my language but if i was u i would have called 911 and told them what those girls were doing then wait until the cops came to pick them up then they can get some sense knocked into them while they wait for their parents to come and ground them for life!
