Disappointing driver behaviour around schools at drop off time
I was drawn to a letter to the editor in the local Hills Shire Times regarding driver behaviour when dropping their kids off at school. It reinforced my own observations on this area of driving around my local primary school.
Some parents attitudes to care for other road users and kids while they drop their own kids off beggars belief.
