Maybe its just me, but I hate school zones.
Forgive me if you have children and are truly offended by these words. But I've yet to get grace this world with a mini-me, so let me rant.
How does this make sense? The entire school yard is surrounded by fencing. Chain link fencing. And sometimes theres some sort of barb wire at the top, so i'm sure these little monsters aren't getting out that easily. So whyyy is it that we have to drive TWENTY FUCKING MPH when we pass the school? Not only do they have to hop the damn fence to get into the street, but shouldn't we be, I don't know say, teaching our kids to not play in the road?
Hey tommy. Cars are fast. And heavy. You are not that fast. You will lose. Get out of the street.
Pretty simple wouldn't you say?
The thing that makes me the most irritated is when the school zone isn't ever NEAR the school. Its something like four blocks away, but heaven forbid Jr. wants to use a cross walk on the way home and if you're in the same zip code from 8am to 4pm you have to SLAM on your breaks just in case you see a youngster.
Maybe we should be weeding out the stupid and slow anyway. Perhaps deepen up the gene pool a bit? Ya, watch out, I'm gunning for your kids. OUT OF THE ROAD!! BEEP! BEEP!
And don't get me started on these signs. It literally makes me want to speed up. Literally.
