      Let me guess, the kid was cited, right?

      Saw the dashcam clip of that last night. My first question was “where’s the parent”?

    Adults do it too. Last night, I was driving home with my adult son. The road was detoured around some construction, and a driver who was not used to the reroute almost collided with us as they had assumed the intersection was a four way stop. They stopped, then proceeded into intersection. We had the right of way, but I was ready just in case that driver did that.

    Driving defensively is the safe way to go.

    Ready to stop is good. You never know what to expect. And based on these Russian videos they are really challenged when it comes to good driving.

      “And based on these Russian videos they are really challenged when it comes to good driving.”

      They are, but remember, as a nation, they’ve really only been driving for less than 30 years; it’s still a fairly new thing to much of the population. Plus, you know….copious amounts of vodka.

  3. My heart stopped for a second!!! I have gained a much more cautious driving technique especially in villages, cities and congested areas as I have gotten older.

    My logic when I drive through a community is two fold.

    One, I feel it is important to observe the speed limits and other restrictions (school zone for instance) as I would expect a resident of the area I am in to do the same where I live.

    Two. What is a minute or two worth to you? Being in a hurry while driving is probably almost as dangerous as driving drunk. I take the extra time to ensure I make safe passage through your congested community.

    I do not want to ever be the cause of or the recipient of dreadful news such as when a child is injured or killed in a situation such as the video presents. I do my best to be as safe as possible.

      Any time I drive through a neighborhood, my eyes are on the yards as much as they are on the road and if I see kids, I slow down even more and get ready to jump on the brakes.

    In a local city which I will not name a certain demographic does this and when you stop your car a horde of them come out of no where, drag you out of your car and beat the shit out of you. If you’re not dead, your car might still be there when you come to.

    • I get that fjord. I used to commute into Chicago 20 years ago and the rules are quite different there.

      In my description I am talking about a red state area of the country. I find the term red-state is applicable to parts of a lot of states that are predominantly blue but have red rural and semi rural regions.

      The other term I use for these areas is ‘Fly-over’ as the libs would not dare venture there and potentially meet a, perish the thought, DEPLORABLE!!!

      • Richard Watson says:

        I lived most of my life in or near Chicago. Stopping for a traffic light the procedure is always leave yourself an out. Don’t pull so close to the car in front of you that you can’t hit the gas and go around. Also, keep your eyes moving; left, right, mirrors, left, right, mirrors.

    • Doug says:

      You see this here too and if you don’t stop and the kid gets hit you have big problem! It’s a lose lose either way so just don’t drive in those areas where everyone has an overly deep tan.

    I have an A-hole neighbor who always flies through our neighborhood at 40-45mph. The posted limit is 25. When I’ve called him out on it, he smiles, nods towards his minivan and says something to the effect of “oh, she can handle it just fine”. I told him about a friends brother who killed a kid that ran out and got crushed up in his front end and how the guy went insane, despite the kids family telling him it wasn’t his fault. But my A-hole neighbor still thinks the curvy streets or our neighborhood are a test of his driving skills in his mommy-van.

    • FaCubeItches says:

      Sounds like you don’t need to worry about him going insane from splatting a kid. The parents of the splatted kid may need to worry about him suing for the dent their kid put in his van, though.

    Driving through residential area en route campus to home.
    Little Brat rode his Big Wheel out from behind parked cars.
    I slammed on the brakes and lost sight of the kid. I hopped out and found the kid laughing his ass off. My front bumper was a hand-span from him. Rear tire of his trike was UNDER the bumper.
    His mother STORMED down the driveway like the Wrath of God. “What have I told you about doing that shit! Let’s see if you’ll remember this!!” And she proceeded to smack his ass all the way up the drive, across the yard, and into the front door. I picked up the Big Wheel and carried up to the house. Mom popped out the door, looked at me, and asked “If you’re going past a Good Will take that damn thing with you. He can’t kill himself if he doesn’t have it.” No Good Will but it did end up at my church’s annual yard sale.

    I had that happen to me when I was living in Ohio eons ago. Was headed to the local Kroger store, it was about 4:30 in the afternoon so traffic was picking up and moving right at the speed limit. The road had cars parked along the left side of the street from my perspective. All of a sudden, I saw a blurry streak in my left side peripheral vision and slammed on the brakes. Then a small kid bounced off the front of my car and landed about 15 feet in front of me in the middle of the road. Luckily, the guy behind me was an off duty cop, who had already called 911. He also told me he saw the whole thing happen and for me not to worry since he would tell everyone that there was no way I could have avoided the kid the way he had darted out from between the parked cars. Turns out the kid was a little brat, who ignored his mother when she told him to wait while she got the groceries out of the car – he had just taken off across the street toward his house. Also, when he got to the hospital, he wouldn’t hold still while the techs were trying to get a head x-ray, so they had to tape him and his head down to the table. He ended up being fine, thank goodness. But the whole thing happened in a split second – so I also slow down and pay extra attention when I see any signs of kids around.

Play nice.
