The biggest danger to school children just down the road from where I live is the parents coming to collect them from school and parking all along the road, including on the double-yellow lines outside the school and very close to the pedestrian crossing. As they park on both sides of the road the space left for passing traffic is quite small and they will then insist on standing in this space with the car door open to put their child or it's sibling into the child seat. The ice-cream van parked outside the school can also be a problem as it's blocks the view of any child running out from between the parked cars. Why do we allow this sort of thing! Also anyone who has an accident that is deemed to be their fault within say 2 or 3 years of passing their driving test should be automatically made to retake the test. In connection with the driving test itself, and this is not meant to be sexist, do you know it is easier for a female to pass the test than for a male. The reason is because more females would actually fail the test and therefore the required standard is slightly lower so that the DoT are shown to be politically correct and passing the same number of males and females.
