I bet they will blame the driver even if it were not his fault. And then we will get the campain for another crossing or speed humps.

I do hope the young lad is fine though.

True, was the young lad on a crossing or was it one of these parents who can't be botherd to walk 50 yards to a crossing "to save there little darlings legs" I have three children I always go to a crossing (if one available) . I hope both the boy & driver are ok.

If the kid was holding one of his parents hands, how come the parent did not get knocked over?

Says it all!

Drivers are not always to blame and every parent should be be ensuring that little children hold their hands near roads!
