As if on cue, from my previous post, a thirty-something father and his 5-7 year old boy jumped out in the middle of traffic this morning and I missed hitting them by about a foot and a half. They were right in the middle of a block and didn't stop when they saw me coming. I screeched to a halt with them dead-center in front of my bumper. I was too stunned to roll down the window and yell at the guy, and he waved at me, oblivious, as if to say thanks for not crippling me and my son. Once I see the cops stop a single dangerous idiot like this, I will happily deal with the speed-traps without complaint. Until then, I can rest easy knowing that their focus is definately NOT on safety or fixing chronic traffic problems.
