40kmh zones

Do you know what makes me more angry than people driving at 40kmh in school zones during school holidays or at 6am in the morning - its people passing me to drive at least 6okmh in school zones whilst using a mobile phone. Do they think I drive at 40kmh for fun, no, I do it to protect our children.

3 children ended up in hospital on Tuesday, the first day back to school. All 3 were hit in school zones.

Stuff like that makes me so mad. Those accidents are so easily prevented and yet some people never learn.

I've had a driver beeping their horn at me for driving 40 in a school zone so naturally I went even slower.

LOL @ Debstar.... I do the same thing. I drive through at least 4 of those 40kmh zones between 8:00am and 9:00am and the number of people who don't slow at all always amazes me.

Traffic around schools can be a a nightmare, but it's a short distance and only twice a day, and a bit of patience wouldn't kill people.

Huh, not killing people - that's the whole point, isn't it?

When they are right up my backside, I get this urgent need to wash my very dirty windscreen - a lot or at least until they back off.
