No. Let me tell you this, the woman really isn't stupid. She is trying to teach her 4 year old a bit of road safety with the biggest lesson being do NOT cross the road in front of a car!

So. Dear car driver, next time you see an adult accompanied by small child waiting to cross the road PLEASE DO NOT stop your car and wave them accross - They are, most probably, trying to educate their children and it really really is not helpful. NOT helpful at all. If said situation arises at a pelican crossing, it is especially not helpful to hoot and beep and try to encourage them to cross before the little green man appears. If you really must be helpful then save it for little old ladies, they, I am sure, will be very grateful and appreciative.
I hope that we have cleared a few things up and we understand one another better.
