Just taking after the parent/s who the child probably saw walk out in the middle of traffic many times & dare cars to hit them.

I saw kids just the other day on Camp Street playing chicken with the cars. They would run out or act like they were going to run out. Scared the crap out of me!

I've seen big kids and little kids laying down in the street... they need a good switch a couple of times.

Dont Worry Be Happy

I was heading to the chessepeak lofts one day, dont remember what side street, and 4 young girls, 2 on bikes 2 walking, would not get out of the road I was furious. I did not yell or beep at them just drove extremely slow behind them, but one of the young girls on the bike decided to stop turn around and put both arms up with a motion as to...come on lady you got a problem with her little head tilt. I wanted to get out of the car and put her over my knee. I sat there watching her and finally some old lady on her porch yelled at her and she moved. All 4 girls started yelling crap at me with arms flying through the air as I drove by them.

Typical crap these idiots do every day. You would think SPD would do something but they seem to look the other way. I've been behind a cruiser when the fools were in the road, they just drove buy like nothing was happening.
