Children's Safety

I witnessed something today that disturbed me.

While I was out and about running errands, I noticed a school bus stopped on the opposite side of the street. The flashing red lights were on and the 'stop sign' extended.

Summer school is in session and apparently it was time for the kids to return home.

Here in Jersey, we all know that when you see a school bus about to let children off the bus, you are suppose to STOP and allow the children to safely cross the street. With kids, you never know where they may dart from...

Much to my surprise, I saw not one, but THREE cars pass the school bus! Not one of those cars stopped. I was just amazed. I felt road rage coming on...well, not exactly, but I was really ticked.

Are we that much in a rush that we just ignore the safety of the children coming off a school bus?

What if the drivers of those cars had children coming off another bus and someone didn't stop for them? I wonder how they would feel if their child was 'hit' because a person was in a hurry and just didn't care.

What are your thoughts about this?

I can NOT STAND this. How hard is it to stop for a bus? How long does it take to sit there and wait?

Driving pet peeves.
