First, thanks for the vegetarian help, things have been going well, and no fights or fits at the house. :-)


Um, I'm not really sure what to do about this or if there is anything I can or should do? So the high school students have become increasingly worse when causing traffic problems. At first it was just the normal, jay walking causing traffic to stop for them to cross the street, not so horrible.... but now we have kids walking down the middle of the road, or today is the worse I've seen, two kids were walking down the middle of the road and two kids were walking beside the side walk in the street, barely enough room to drive between them, and it makes me really anxious that someone might hit them while they're trying to be so 'hard-core'.


t might be one thing if this was occurring around the school, like a "hey, people need to slow down near schools protest" (even that would still be pretty stupid).... but this is occurring several miles from the high school. Do you call the school or the cops or just wait until someone gets killed?

I'd probably start with the non-emergency police number.

Call the school and they might put out an announcement? I lived beside a high school and I yelled at kids like an old daly (Im 25, hah.)

I would call the school. When I was in highschool and people complained (mostly about us being noisy outside or something idk) they would make a school-wide announcement. I don't know if that would do anything, but I don't know what the police would oo either.

That's what I'm worried about... like, it's not as if they don't know they could get hurt, I'm afraid if nothing is done it'll take the death of a kid to really make the students respect that cars can crush them.i want to say the police and maybe they could give the kids a jaywalking ticket as a punishment that might keep them off of the road, but idk. The police are busy and short handed in my area. I think calling the school might have less effect, but there's a chance they could send a school cop.... maybe.

Unfortunately, we had a bad jaywalking situation at a school here and it honestly took someone getting hit ( not killed, thank god) before anything was done. Hopefully a school cop can do something!

I'd probably contact both the school and the police. Maybe the school will make an announcement regarding it, and the police might just send someone out at that hour of the day to patrol it. Hopefully they only need to do it once, and the kids will just do as they are supposed to and not walk in the middle of the road.

sounds like survival of the fittest to me
