Very inaccurate title and synopsis.
The driver cleary turned on to the sidewalk quite intentionally and was not trying to hit the kids. As you can see, he slowed down and waited for them to cross.

There is no need to add drama.

Why was the car on the sidewalk?

This likely wasn’t a hate crime as the impatient driver valued saving himself a few seconds of time over the safety of others.

Very irresponsible thing to do!

Certainly deserving of a fine or traffic violation ticket at least, so it shouldn’t happen again! Hope they got his license plate number. They could install iron bars or poles on the sidewalk to prevent cars from entering if needed.

I guess you were either the driver, or you also do this kind of thing. I did no know that cars were allowed to drive on sidewalks.

The driver was just in a hurry. Saw that thr school bus in front of him put his lightd on and hell have to wait. So he was original, dangerous and not responsible. He found himself a short cut

Can you imagine if there was an incident? What’s it going to cost him his life? Maybe he’ll be in handcuffs? Maybe he’ll be sent to this police station? And we could go on and on and on because of his foolish mistakes better to wait 2 and 1/2 minutes extra by a traffic light and be late to wherever he is going then to make a foolish incident mistake that can cost him his life…… now let me ask you what is he thinking????????

Make the sidewalks smaller to prevent such a thing again.

I always try to drive before 2 in Boro Park because all the crazies get out of bed that time. I guess this one got up early? It’s dangers and I’m not joking!

You just need one small pillar in middle of the side walk to prevent a car from driving there, like they do in all big shopping ears in Manhattan there’s a row of small pillars, you don’t need so many, just one in middle of the sidewalk in the begging & end of the block

They have license numbers

Probably just a teacher running a little late lol.
In all seriousness this guy will be getting big fine,huge violation.
I imagine that they would collect his info…

This was a very serious violation

This was a very dangerous maneuver. I can’t believe some people here are downplaying it. This driver should be arrested and charged with reckless endangerment. Yes, you can be arrested for a trafic violation. Just because police usually just give a ticket, does not mean they can’t arrest somone under certain circumstances.

crazy!!!

Just one or two posts or pillars placed strategically in the center of the sidewalk and this would never again be a problem!

Problem with that is: what about people who have those double-wide strollers? They wouldn’t be able to get through either.
