Growing up I was told look left and right before stepping out onto the road.....

Kids now a day think a cross walk means they can step out without looking and cars will stop everytime.

That's not always the case because drivers are too busy posting selfies or checking there status on FB or playing candy crush or some nonsense like that.

Parents educate your children on how to keep safe crossing the road!


Please educate yourself on the whole story of the situation. The kids crossed when they were allowed to cross. They did not just “step without looking”. The woman had a flashing yellow and did not see the kids crossing (when they were very much allowed to!). My kids are very much educated about how dangerous roads can be.
