Kids And Traffic

Published:

Today my mom and I were coming home from grocery shopping when this young boy of 11 or 12 jouts out across the intersection on his bike and almost ends up getting hit. I about had a heart-attack. Seriously a van was|this close to smashing into the boy. This is a very big and busy intersection and he didn't seem to want to wait for his turn to go. He just decided to go for it. My mom was ranting and raving and I agreed with her. Did this kid ever learn the proper way to handle traffic from anyone? Maybe the parents didn't teach him, maybe they did and the kid just didn't care, but he was awful close to learning a lesson the hard way.

I'm in the green car, the boy the blue and the big red van that almost hit him.

I was going to get my perscriptions from the drug store and I am approaching the drug store when a baby just old enough to walk. Who is in just a diaper that is it comes from the side parking lot. He gets half way across the two lane road. The dodge that is coming towards him luckily see him come out of the side parking lot so he stops and I have already stopped to see if his parents or someone is watching out for him. Then it took like 15 to 30 seconds before his father realized he was standing out in the street and he came and got him. Then to make the kids day even worse his father grabs him by the arm and is just shoving him back to the car. It almost looked like he was going to drag the little guy back to the car. Some people just do not keep their eye on the kids when they should.-weshar75

Oh wow...how could the father let that happen? A little one like that should always be watched especially near busy roads and such. When my nephew, that is 2 years old came up to visit me, he would run all over the place and the first place he would head towards would be the road. We couldn't take our eyes off of him for a moment.
