Yes, I suspect the young children made a bad judgement. Naughty ? Wow. These are primary school children. The disgusting way alot of adults speak about children, it’s no wonder so many young with mental health problems. I dont know these Children, but I find Your comment quite offensive.

The disgusting way parents are always yelling at their children when out and about. Should be a ‘ PARENTING’ school. To teach people how to be parents.

Have you experienced the hazard awareness part of the driving test? So there was a bus, even when i was young, in the dark age, you knew to be careful that passengers might alight in front of you, especially children. Also, buses have priority. Easy with hindsight i know, and i was not there. But maybe time to reflect on the pitfalls of our clock centred society and not blame children.

Why aren’t parents and the schools teaching young kids about road safety? Even if they don’t, most watch tv and I recall when there used to be adverts about this sort of thing, Charley says, or whatever it was, I used to take notice of them and remember.

I live in an adjacent road, and often drive and sometimes cycle down Monkton Street. I’m often horrified at how fast people drive down it, because cars are parked both sides, and at anytime a pedestrian, let alone children, can just run out and into a car, having an obscured view. But many drivers act as though if they speed up, then either a) they’ll beat the speed of anyone crossing the road, (which makes no safety sense), or b) that they will put people off crossing the road because they, the drivers, are going frighteningly fast. Pedestrians think they’re in a quiet backwater, until someone comes tearing along.

PLUS vehicle drivers have no clue about the width of their vehicle… but they do not mention that on a driving test, so why would they ?

More excellent Island driving (riding) I have no idea how these excellent drivers and riders get a licence, are there cutouts on back of cereal boxes, or can one download and print out a licence? The driving test is a farce. Far too easy.. seems even blind people can get one !
Driving licence should only be valid for 10 years. Then have to pay and go for another test. The Government would earn more money, roads might become a little safer..
