Description

This is a repeat issue. I see cars constantly ignoring stopped school buses with their red lights blinking on Gick Road. This morning, I observed a white vehicle slow down because they belatedly noticed bus, then speed up and revved right by the school bus. A child had literally just crossed the road to get on the bus, almost getting hit because the car was going so fast. The stop sign recently installed at Jordan Rd N is useless, with people ignoring that as well. There are residents on Gick Road with children, animals, etc. It is not a highway. This is the third time I have reported this type of incident. This isn't a stupid issue, someone could be hurt or killed. I don't want to watch my son getting on the school bus and getting mowed down by an ignorant and careless driver. The school bus driver honked her horn LOUDLY, to no avail.
