Lately, as I drive my children to school, I have noticed that the patience level of drivers has decreased. More people are beeping at each other to move out of the way and even in the school parking lot, cars are not stopping to let students pass. My advice is if it's so important that you get somewhere on time, leave 10 minutes earlier so you won't have to rush. 5-10 minutes could save a life.
