I am very roads are for cars. Parks and yards are for kids.

I do not agree with kids playing on the road although we grew up on a very quiet culdesac (only 10houses) so very rarely was there much traffic. We noe live on a cottage block and access to our garage is from a one way laneway. Most days without fail their are kids playing in there. To enter its a semi blind corner because of shrubbery. These kids would be under 8 and are rarely supervised either. We live across from a park so no excuse really.
Kids and cars are unpredictable

Even a cul de sac would worry me - I had a client whose cousin accidentally ran over their own kid in their driveway so expecting neighbours to have to watch out for other people's kids riding on the road I think is a little unfair - my DS has great road sense, it's other people driving and not seeing him that would worry me, we always take him to the park to ride his bike or he rides on the foot path with DH, never on the road

We turned onto a street today to 2 boys crouched playing on the side of the road. They were out of sight until we were almost upon them- very silly. They were only 5 or 6 years old. Not cool.

Theres bunch of kids in my street who play on the road, for this reason i always drive slow and they All scatter off the road when they see a car coming.
It's not something i would ever allow my kids to do.
The other day one of the neighbours and his wife were playing tennis on the road!
Whats next? Football on the expressway? Haha

Kids playing on the road.
Our neighbours' kids play on the road all the time and I hate it. Yes it's a quiet street with no through traffic but I still think it's dangerous. There are plenty of places for kids to play without risking their lives!

I grew up playing on a cul-de-sac. It was great. All the neighbours kids would come out and play. We knew we were allowed to stay out till sunset. We would play cricket, ride bikes, skip etc. they are some of my fondness childhood memories. We moved to a road similar to what the op is talking about. There was no way I played on the road then. Cars speed, drivers are inattentive etc. why can't they just play in someone's backyard (unless you live in area where house blocks are 300sqm!).

Like the pp I grew up on a cul de sac and would regularly play out on the road with the neighborhood kids.
We live on a quiet street and the neighbour's children quite often play out there. Tbh it worries me because we live in a new development with lots of construction with tradies and trucks quite regularly driving up and down our street. I don't believe our street is safe for this kind of play or the street mentioned in the op but if it was similar to the street I grew up in I would be more ok with it
