    It's just so unsafe
    Yep than someone gets mad and takes of all road ragey and runs over some poor kid trying to get in a double parked car or some poor kid trying to cross the road but can't see because of the car parked there.

    So dangerous. This was a real problem at our school on wet, rainy days. Anyway, one day a woman was reversing to try and get out and didn't see the kid behind her and ran him over. It was horrific. The school really re-enforced safe parking then and it's never been as bad since.
    Now we live 'in-zone' we just walk to and from school unless it's really awful weather. Saves the hassle of trying to find a park.

    we're right on the edge of our zone so it's a 25 minute walk with my ds, plus my 2 others in a double pram. I have a fat a$$ too but I will avoid the traffic around the school and park on the other side of the oval which is across the road from the school. it's made such a difference on my road rage! lol. it's got footpaths so even if it's raining it's not that bad on the pram & in getting an extra 10 minute walk in.

    people get so nuts at school pickup. I wish they could stagger home times eg k-1 2:45, 2-4 2:55, 4-6 3:05 - just to give it some sort of spacing

    Omg it's so bad that it took this to happen before some real action. Although not in this situation yet, I hope that when DS goes to school I have enough brains to park and walk a couple of blocks.

    Every day I am horrified at parents parking/driving dangerously at our school. Even when there are parks they still double park and let their kids our onto the road. I absolutely don't understand why someone would dump a tiny kinder kid out of a huge 4wd onto the middle of a road.

    Here's a thought, park 5 or 10 mins walk away. It's not hard.

    We don't have this problem at all at our school! Everyone just parks in the surrounding streets, no issue!
    We also have the parking cops come around about once a week, usually just getting people in the bus zones, not that we even have buses anyway...

    Wow I thought my kids school pickup was bad. This is dangerous.

    I'm usually always 10 mins late picking the kids up. They know to wait at the crossing with the crossing guard til they see me pull up or down a side street.
