I call it "Drop-Off Russian Roulette". And during the school year, many parents of children at school age choose to play this dangerous game daily.
It is against the law of omitting children anywhere than a designated school area, but clearly the threat of quotation and need to take part in a few hours in a traffic school not enough to prevent it.
When my middle school comes into my bedroom by looking at his hand at 6:45 pm and announces that his bike has its half-tier of tires, it means only one thing – I'm going to have to put a robe over my pajamas and try to let my hair lie flat. I have just been given two minutes notice that he has to go to school.
That's not what I think about the unfinished tour. What I can not hide is the incredibly dangerous activity of the innumerable parents who participate in the school.
The school provides a comfortable number of safe areas next to the curriculum and out of bounds for parents to adjust and drop their offspring. In any morning, in love and stressed parent, a good number of children, they will easily forget about those areas.
It is almost like threats of punishment and traffic school do not apply when you have places to go and dilute.
Do parents really bring their kids across the street from the school and allow them to bob and weave through the traffic like squirrel on the freeway just to save them a few minutes of traffic jams on their way to work?
Should their little children be always stuck and labeled as "sometimes challenging" if they do not double and let their children jump out of the door behind the driver so they can try to dart accidentally with an endless flow of migration steel?
Or sometimes some believe that the bribery and traffic school results to stop the red curve do not kick in until they have unloaded their precious cargo.
It is perhaps not common for U-rotation to be illegal on a two-way residential street. However, I would think it would only be a little sense to realize that this movement is not going to work too well in a big SUV or Mommyvan. The U-turn will be a sudden 4-point turn; all carried out while trying not to get back into or run over one another illegally omitted children now taken to take action.
Basically, many of these parents take only one child step outside to open the door, but the car is still moving and giving a younger shoe.
These parents are not bad. I know this because I see them at night school and the kids sports event. What boggles my mind is how so many people, of course, love their children can take such unnecessary opportunities for their children when they get rid of them and take them out of school.
Yes, all these actions are against law. I could cite a violation of the vehicle code and a fine for each of these violations. I would remind you that in many countries you may also need to participate in a traffic school.
for what purpose?
If the potential danger to any child is not divorced, I can not believe I'm fined and traffic jargon will make a penny of difference.
Maybe it's just because I was never a lot of gambler but I can not help asking myself – in this deadly game "Drop-Off Russian Roulette"
