Danger pupils; Yourview.

AS a driver, I was shocked at some of the carry-ons as I passed a school today.

Pupils seemed to think it was fun to throw someone else on to the road in front of oncoming cars.

Others played "chicken" by seeing if they could make it across the road before the car passed.

I feel this is something that should be monitored by staffat the schools, as there are too many accidents like these that could be avoided.

The fault will always be aimed at the driver and not the person who threw the child on to the road.

Quick reactions and knowing what could be in front of me allowed me to avoid hitting a child. Not everyone could be so lucky.

Can you imagine killing a child because of some horseplay? I hope I never have to find out.
