by far one of MY personal greatest fears. I live in a "rural...ish" area. My boys get the bus at the end of the drive way. Speed limit 35. I have seen more than vehicle round the curve 300 meters down the street and blow by the BIG ASS FLASHING, BLINKING, YELLOW bus.... as my son was about to cross the road TO the bus. While it is NOT the best idea...i do KNOW it works... My mailbox post is a 12' piece of rail road track 8' in the ground with 4' of concrete 36" dia. It took me 3 days to do the work but...our rule is YOU WAIT here (x) until YOU look at the road and its clear or car is STOPPED. Im sure the Lord is with that very unfortunate family AND the driver as all are certainly in need.
