My daughters attend daycare at a building that is nestled within a large apartment complex. The speed limit on the streets within the complex is 10 MPH so you just putt-putt along, and there are quite a few speed bumps too – makes sense, since there are a lot of kids who live in this complex.
Oh, and there are a lot of sidewalks as well. A lot. Well-kept sidewalks.
But I swear to god I am going to freak out on some of these people if they will not get their asses OFF the street and ONTO the sidewalk!!!
I pulled into the complex this morning, and a big group of people was with their kids for the school bus. There was enough room on the sidewalk for EVERYONE but half of the people (adults AND kids) were just hanging out in the middle of the street. This happens all the time – they walk in the street, even though there’s a sidewalk right there.
It’s just so dangerous. I’m worried that I’m going to hit them, but they don’t seem worried at all. There’s nothing for me to do but continue to drive extreeeeemely cautiously, but my god, don’t they care??? Do they want their kids to get run over??? This drives me batty!
