does this happen to you when you are driving and kids are standing or walking in the middle of the road and won't move over. what do you do? i try to drive around them but sometimes i end up waiting a minute or so for them to move enough so i can go around

just beep at them or rev the car and if they still dont move just keep moving closer and closer

kids that age think they are invincible and think they own the whole world. I find teens these days have incredible attitudes (i know, i live with one...lucky me!!) next time just honk at em really loud and long and annoy the heck outta em - then maybe they will move lol

It happens. It happens a lot! And it's not just teens, it's adults, too. I try to slow down and make way for them, but they usually end up giving me dirty looks anyway. When I'm on foot, I try to give cars the right of way, as I don't feel that it's fair that they should have to slow down because I've decided to cross in front of them.

Some of the kids around here already ride their mini bikes and quad bikes up and down in the middle of the road, with no thought for anyone else, and yes they do amble round in the middle of the road. there have been times when I have been very, very tempted to simply keep driving and make them move, most of the time though I simply sound the horn at them until they move.

I use to have this happen to me when I lived in another town. I would honk my horn at them. If that didn't work then I would try to go around them. My partner once called a police officer on his cell phone to scare the teenagers. I am lucky because now the town I live in won't allow such behavior.

The kids do that evry where! They unfortunately cause accidents because there are certain drivers who simply dont care and have them ran over!

Here in Maryland the teens are very rude. They think their butts are harder than my car. I have blown my horn and yelled at them. Some times they move some times they don't. I think this is because thier parents don't care. I have some kids in my neighborhood that are running the streets at elevel o clock at night. There was a commercial that came on every now and then when I was a kid and it asked Do you know where your children are?. I am sure that the parents of these teens who are so disrespectful do not know where their kids are and maybe don't even care.
