I just wanted to write this post to remind everyone to LOCK their car doors when they are driving. Yesterday while I was driving home with my two youngest kids we had a problem with a pedestrian. I was coming upon a sidewalk when I seen a lady waiting to cross the street. So I slowed down the car and came to a stop well before the crosswalk line. The lady waved at me acting like she was making sure I was stopping so she could cross. I raised my hand and waved my hand to signal her to cross. As she was walking across the street, she started to come out of the crosswalk and came directly towards my car. Her body was positioned in the middle of my car and as she walked around my car she had her body brush up along the car. (So I couldn't move the car forward without hitting her) I quickly looked over to make sure my door was locked. Luckily I have automatic locks that lock when I start to drive. Next she started jerking the door handle and banging on the window to get in. I just started yelling at her, "No! You need to get away from my car now!" She backed up just enough for me to take off without running over her feet. As I looked in my mirror I seen that she started to go for the car behind me as well. The next several drivers all speed up and quickly passed around her. Of course I didn't have my cell phone with me and I should have drove straight to the police department, but I didn't. I was trying my hardest to stay calm and comfort my 4 year old in the backseat who was really upset. Thankfully my doors were locked! Do you drive with your doors locked?
