    Report them to the police. That makes me shudder thinking of those little kids in such a dangerous situation. I for one am glad you're so mad about it and urge you to make a quick call to the police. You might find they roster some patrols around school pick up and drop off times.

    Would i need photo proof do u think? I dodnt get any today as i was driving and my phone was at home but next time i could take a picture for the police

    But untill it happens again will they listen with out proof??

    It only takes one slip and those kids head will hit the road in great force or one wrong bump and the bike heads into traffic.

    I get not having a car or whatever but walk for petes sake

    Everything in our town is walking distance and i mean everything!!

    I'm not sure Bubbygirl, ring the police and ask them what they require you to.

    Scum is quite a strong word to use for a father making an irresponsible mistake.

    You say in a small town everyone gets into other peoples business, couldn't agree more but you have involved yourself so I think you do have a slight responsibility to report it.
    I know what seems like common sense to the majority of people sometimes doesn't to others so maybe he just needs a slap on the wrist to remind him of the dangers of doing this.
    You can also report anonymously.

    I uses scum because of their past and past actions which is why im worried about reporting them as i know what they do.

    But yeah i feel for the sake of these kids i need to involve myself by reporting

    But how? Is it 000 i ring or another number? As the station is a long drive from us

    Bubbygirl I know in QLD the police have another number for non emergencies, I can't remember what it is. Perhaps you could look online to see if there is something similar where you live. I would suggest, as other's have, to report annonymously (sp? sorry) and see what they say.

    Good luck!

    Look up the number of the police station near you and then ring them. You cna make an anonymous complaint.

    Hi
    I would suggest calling the police or Kid safe in your area and ask there advice on handling the situation i would think they will come down and have a look for them selfs if it happens all of the time.
