Parents say they’re tired of drivers who are in such a hurry.

“If you have kids of your own I don’t think you’d appreciate someone doing that to your child, so have respect for other people’s kids because they’re there to keep them safe,” said Catherine Knepshield, whose child was injured in the crash.
