Parents drive toward kids crossing streets

But that's not all these parents do. They turn their wheels toward the kids AND they actually ACCELERATE toward the children. They drive slowly forward, aimed right at the kids, so that they can proceed as soon as the child's backpack clears their bumper.
This is dangerous. What if the child suddenly turned around to run back for something? You would hit the kid.
In addition, how do you think it feels to have a car bearing down on you as you cross the road?
Keep your wheels straight until the children have finished crossing.
Do not drive toward children who are crossing the street. Do not put your foot on the gas until the kids have crossed the street. What is the purpose of Character Education in the schools when the parents are such poor examples?
