Lisa recently posted that she is a “follow the rules” person- well, so am I. I always
return my shopping cart, I use my turn signal all the time (maybe too much) and I always park in a designated parking spot.
When I pick up the kids after school there is a red curb about 10 feet on either side of the cross walk. There are always people parked there to pick up there kids. Sometimes they stay in the car and sometimes they actually park and walk across the street to get their kid. There is a sign there posted “No parking during school hours.” There is even another sign that has the times posted on it “between 7:30 and 3pm.” The police and metermaids have been out a few times and given out a few tickets.
I figure I parked and walked myself up the hill (a little hill, but a still an incline) the whole time I was pregnant and when Avery was in the infant seat. If she was sleeping I lugged the dang carrier thing up there.
I get to the school early enough to get a decent place to park. Even when I get there 10 minutes before school is even out there are people already parked in the red zone, by the crosswalk. It drives me CRAZY! Usually it is the same people.
If you are one of these people that park in the red zone where it is obviously posted, then please tell me WHY? The only reason I can think of is, if your young child were alseep in the car and you didn’t want to leave them locked in the carÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but there is a designated place to sit in the car and wait for your kid- a driveway type thing.
