Sgt. Hart needs to get off his dead ... and get his guys out there and find this person. I can't stand all these stories where the PD asks for the public's help. If you guys quit effing over the public every day with all the BuSy tickets, maybe we'd help you out a bit more? Then again start patrolling and you might prevent these incidents from happening because there are many idiots on the road every day.

Lots of kids know what their friend's parents drive. Talk to the kids to find out whose parent has that car.

You want to see a convention of bad driving, drive by any elementary school in the afternoon.

Most of the SUV driving cell phone users aren't looking when they make their illegal U turns.

Easy to see where a kid could get hit.

This one is so easy to solve.... Go into each and every classroom and ask whose parents drive a black SUV and start narrowing it down til you find the guilty party.

Another solution. At each and every school where cars are allowed on the grounds to drop or pick-up students, they have to list the car, make, license number and who drives what vehicle. If the vehicle does not match any of the listed ones, then you know it was most likely a visitor and look at the visitors log to see who came on your campus. If it was a parent of a student there, SHAME ON YOU FOR LEAVING! You had to know that you hit something. All of the parents at that school should be looking for this driver. There has to be some damage to the SUV, look for it. Unreal.

How can these accidents happen and no one see. How can the drivers who hit pedestrians run off as though it was an animal that they hit. When these people are caught and they will be caught, they should make it a minimum of ten years behind bars.

The moms here in MB are the worst.
They are so RUDE. They never stop for anybody. There is a stop sign in front of my house with a crosswalk and they just could care less.
Usually in some big Range Rover or BMW SUV.
Always on the phone.
What kind of mom is it that just drops off the kids while on the phone?

The police should double all fines in a school zone.
They do it for construction. Sometimes it os triple.
I`ll say it again....you Moms out there who drive like crap are the worst of the worst.
Get off your dam phone and raise your kids.
Screw you stupid idoits that drive like crap. Especailly the moms. You suck.

She won't get very far, should be an easy case to solve and brought to justice.

We also have to teach kids to pay more attention and be alert of there surroundings! They should also enforce the Speed Limit in school areas, they do in Vegas. I hope they find the person responsible.

It is a violation of the Calif. Vehicle Code to talk on your cell phone while driving and there is a fine that goes with that. However, until the State Legislature gets off of their dead butts and creates a fine that get's everybody's attention like $1500.00 for each violation, then we will continue to see drivers violating this law. Unfortunately we will continue to see our kids run down in the streets by these people like they were nothing but a piece of garbage. How nice.

Apparently someone couldn't pass the police entrance tests! Look Starsky, it is apparent that you have a major chip on your shoulder but are you really this stupid? You sound like the typical moron who thinks the police can be everywhere all the time! And making a personal attack on someone in a blog by using their name and not yours is simply cowardly. Listen, there is no one else to blame for that security job you have, so stop lashing out at those who actually do the job. If you knew anything about the American police structure, the police often depend on assistance from the public in helping to solve crimes, or provide tips that lead to solving crimes. Now stop being a total idiot and go check on the food court, no doubt you have some major action occurring there now!!!!

An MB mom dropping her offspring off at school? Must not have been too hung over...usually their nanny's do it.

Tell me about it, Some skirt tried to turn left from the offramp lane missed me by inches. I gave her a blast from my horn then she jumped over and barely missed hitting another car. Why can't people just back off and get behind instead they speed up and cut you off.

This along with making it a "moving violation" infraction i.e. points against you on your driving record. People blatantly ignore the cell phone laws like they're meaningless. Even rich people who drive $100,000+ cars don't want to wear an Bluetooth. It's not that money's an object. I just don't get how human beings are "creatures of habit" and can't break out of their comfort zone by changing their behavior a little.

Off topic but I see many more men yapping on their cells than women driving, of course they make it that much more obvious in their lifted 4xs by holding the phone a few inches from their face.
