Does anyone else find school speed zones somewhat ludicrous?
I say this because on my way to drop off dd at preschool I drive through :
1) The high-school 20 mph school zone. The biggest offenders are the highschool kids themselves, but uhhhh yeah, I expect teenagers to not jump into traffic. Of course this may be extending them more credit for brains than due. They walk to school in shorts and t-shirt when it is 18 degrees out.
2) The completely fenced in elementary school with a 20 mph zone just in case a kid at recess climbs the fence and dashes across the street.
3) The rest of the town with thousands of kids standing on sidewalks, in the street, hiding behind parked cars and chasing eachother into the street while waiting for the bus in a normal 40 mph zone. These are the kids I have to watch out for, but I can zip by at 40 mph and noone cares
How does this make any sense?
