Default Crash n' Derby in the driveway again!

We have had the gate up and running since the fall and it has been working fabulously. The battery for the opener was dying so we got a new one and were charging it up, consequently the gate was open. Now, it has been made pretty clear that parents are to park on the street but with the gate open some sped right in the driveway. One of the dcmoms that came in the driveway backed out and rammed one of the dads who parked in the street this morning.

THIS is why we have the gate! Are these people not the worst drivers ever?

You should have given out certificates for driving lessons at Christmas time!

At least it wasn't YOUR property this time... but sad for the DCD who was parking where he was supposed to I sure hope you brought or do bring up the fact that she wasn't supposed to be there in your driveway in the first place- you have some very disrespectful families, that stinks!

MY GOSH! I've SEEN the pictures you've posted of the gate and your set up, ITS NOT THAT CONFUSING! What in the heck are these people thinking? You've got some seriously disrespectful parents, my heavens! I have a parent that parks down half a block from my house because pick up time is usually so congested since I live IN town, and on a main road, that she took it upon herself to become one less car in the mess!

I think I would buy some of those spike strips that the police use.

Throw them out in the morning before the parents come again in the afternoon.

I can only imagine what point level their auto insurance is at, and what they pay to stay on the road
