Traffic on this road is now becoming a serious problem. The majority of the traffic on this cul-de-sac is parents and carers dropping of children at the start of school and collecting them after school. I doubt that anyone was speeding. The residents I know have some difficulty in parking their cars on their their driveways at peek times.

Now that's a more sensible post. Just glad it wasn't more serious.

It's my usual high standard.

I am sure that Mrs. cummings will emphasise the need for road safety from the parents and remind the children not to run out into the road.

You should also have been taught about stopping distances - in which case you would know that an even an emergency stop is not instant.
