    I usually communicate my displeasure with the driver by the use of a certain finger, if you get my drift.

    This is a hot topic with me Kknde!  I have two children and we live close to the school so they don't get a bus ride.  The school was built in the 1950s and the parking lot is very inefficient.  Compared to the parking lot of a newer school which has a separate entrance for teachers/buses.  This school has one entrance.  There is one crossing guard on the opposite side of the road.  Coming from my neighborhood, there is no guard or sign to indicate a school is even located within the area.  I've combatted with local authorities about this for some time.  It's frustrating.

    Last year, I stepped up to the curb with my children and waited.  There is no electronic crossing device.  There is no guard at this curb located directly on the school property.  We looked both ways and then stepped out.  A red jeep blew through the crosswalk, and another car from the opposite direction almost mowed us down in the street within the crosswalk.  I started yelling STOP, and the car looked at me and kept going right through.

    I reported the incident to the school officials.  I was told to take plate numbers and contact the police.  I felt that would be ridiculous.   It made me feel like next time I'll just handle it myself!  Then, on another street corner, I actually saw a crossing guard get mowed over by a hit and run. 

    So this year, the school now has a police officer stationed at the school before the first bell and at dismissal time.  That red jeep from last year, just got a ticket and I watched it all go down.  She ran right by the flashing lights of a school bus dropping off children at the school.  The police officer caught her in the act.  What's more disturbing, is she is an employee.

    What's to handle?  There will always be people in the world who practice "man's inhumanity to man" on a large scale and on a small scale. You do everything to protect yourself, stay out of their way, and rise above their level of inhumanity.. You look to the helpers in the world, as Mr. Rogers used to tell the kids in his TV audience, and you feel blessed that there are so many of THOSE people.  You surround yourself with good and copy it.  Cheers, kknde.

    I use the middle finger.  The more you use it, the longer it grows.  Mine is so long I don't have to get up to adjust the thermostat anymore, but it does make wiping myself a bit awkward.

    Are you kidding?  Cell phone video and include the plates.
    If the cops won't do anything, send it to the news media.
