I live on a quiet suburban street. In fact, I have returned to the house I grew up in. There is an elementary school and a middle across the street; I attended both. The traffic is insane at drop-off and pick-up for both schools. I do not remember it being like that when I was in school. When it rained, cars would line-up in the driveway of the school, but they did not clog the street as you see here. And they drive like manics. When the weather is bad as it is today, many parents keep their kids home or must deal with this. The school bus from the high school across town also drops off students at around the same time. We need more good urban planners!
Here is what the street looked like lust before the craziness.
