    Middle of a snow storm.....what do you do? Good sized storm, 8-14"...still snowing. Municipal and private plow trucks are everywhere.

    Well this lady apparently thinks it's the perfect time to pull her kid down the middle of the road on a tube

    Well, other than not having a flashing beacon strapped to her head, it seems pretty normal to what we have around here.


    It's mandatory in NJ that they have a flashing amber light on their heads when performing the "toddler in a rubber sled" act.

    I think that's how it works everywhere....federally, state wide, local.... it's all the same to me.


    Looks like she's just having a little fun with the kid. Don't see the problem unless she's challenging the vehicles, or out in the dark doing it... but that's just me.

    I might even pull up along side her and check out her tookass.......:D

    I have to agree, way better than most parents just sitting inside all day long and letting the kid play video games.

    We had a blizzard a little bit ago and for some reason bowdoin college didnt cancel classes. People walking right down the middl of the road with graders and loaders trying to get by them.

    That's common too. Sidewalks aren't shoveled but roads are plowed (or in the process of being plowed) so people walk down the road.

    I don't like that either but at least I understand it. As long as they're going somewhere important, work for example. If they're just going to dunkin donuts for a coffee than I want them killed.

    At least you can see her. One night during this last blizzard I almost hit a guy who was dressed in all black on a black snowmobile racing down the street. Almost backed right over him clearing my driveway.

    Which I'm sure would've been labeled your fault, even with strobes and a reverse alarm

    She can't walk on the sidewalk. Its 6' deep. I feel people's pain. They need to get out and get fresh air.

    Yeah

    I am guessing if he would have said, Okay officer, I will head home. Things would have ended better that day for all involved :dizzy:.
