Early morning noise

Please, please, please to the well meaning individuals who honk at the kids at the Forest Park bus stop before 8:45am. I am asking nicely. Please do not honk. I live next to the bus stop.

I am recovering from a long illness and have a great deal of difficulty sleeping at night. Sometimes the only rest I get is between about 4am and 9am. It is very disturbing to be awoken by car horn after truck horn after car horn honking multiple times every few minutes sometimes for over 20 minutes while the kids are waiting at the stop to be picked up by the bus between 8:15 and 8:40. Especially when this sometimes happens every day for a week. Please be considerate to those living near the bus stop and don't honk. Thank you to all of you who don't honk!

And to the parents of the kids at the bus stop, please teach them to be considerate of the neighbors and not to gesture to vehicles to make them honk.
