Why is this allowed? Why is this not considered dangerous? Now the kids are playing out in the street where the cars drive.
The route I take home every day has one such house, as the second house on the corner. The road is a 30 mph road. It’s residential, but it’s right off a busy 40 mph road.
Now these kids have obviously been instructed because they always get off the road. And I’ve lived there a while now so I am hyper-aware of them in the summer.
But if you don’t know they’re there, I can easily see an accident happening. And I see this all over suburbia, every day, with the kids playing in the street.
The really funny thing is, in our neighborhood is also a small playground with a basketball hoop that is off the main road (as in, not anywhere near a road)! But I don’t know if the kids are not allowed to go there or something - it’s not farther than I was allowed to play when I was a child but I’m not really in touch with kids these days.
What say you guys? I say these things are a nuisance and a hazard. Play in the back yard, or do what we did, and hang the basketball hoop off the garage door so you’re playing in the driveway. Oh, but then the parents can’t park with ease. :rolleyes:
