David Gambone08/31/14"When a marking at an intersection tells you it is a pedestrian crosswalk, stay behind the line and leave the entire allotted space for pedestrian use." This is the law that I called the number on the back of the car to let the owners know their car was violating, by being stopped in a crosswalk, blocking traffic, keeping pedestrians from crossing, and waiting to turn right at a red light when they already had the clear for a very long time. Only, instead of a courteous "I'll look into it and make sure our instructors know.", I was argued with, told something about Jesus, and was told to give them a break, even though each car has an instructor who should know better. To realize my passion for this, please understand that my husband has been hit in a crosswalk on more than one occasion by drivers who weren't obeying that law and weren't looking for pedestrians or cyclists IN A MARKED CROSSWALK. I'm sure someone gave those drivers a break too, but as a drivers education program, mediocrity and apathy for simple road rules regarding pedestrian safety should not be taken lightly. In fact it should be alarming and addressed as such, All I wanted from this company was an acknowledgement that they knew the road laws and would make sure their drivers would obey them so pedestrians and cyclists don't get hit. Instead I got a belligerent argument from the program owner about a well known law, and an apathetic response to my legitimate concern, which assured me that they really just don't care. They should keep in mind that first impressions are everything and speak volumes about a business and it's knowledge. Personally if I had to send one of my 3 kids to driving school, I'd keep googling. I give them 1 star only because the stars don't go negative.
