I do a lot of work with elementary schools. Drop-off times in the mornings and afternoons are quite busy. It would be much safer if more kids rode the bus, walked, or biked, instead of having their parents pick and drop them. It's understandable that many kids are too young to ride or walk on their own, and that most families live too far to walk, but that's what the schoolbus is for. One bus can carry far more kids and drop them off far more safely than ten or twenty SUVs and minivans weaving in and out of the parking lot. Generally, the more cars are being driven, the more dicey things get.
