I commute to work right when school starts, so I arrange my route to avoid them. Sometimes, though, I can’t avoid it. And though I’d love to get around them when they have their red lights flashing, there’s this little thing called the law that says I can’t. (I did once, though — see the extended section for details.)
But that doesn’t stop some people.
If ever there was a clear call for a police crackdown, this is it — before some kid gets run down.
(updated to clarify red lights)
* I was in a real hurry, I was very, very careful, and the bus was cruising down the highway at 60 MPH at the time. I don’t know why he had his lights flashing, though.
