TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A Tucson woman is fed up with drivers near her grandchildren's west-side school.

Alice Dominguez said drivers who use the intersection at West Wetmore Road and North La Cholla Boulevard are being reckless and she is pleading with them to be patient.

She said the intersection can get busy in the morning as people d rop off their kids or head to work, but that is no excuse for what she is seeing every morning.

She said the problem is when parents are running late as they take their kids to school or head to work.

Dominguez has nine grandchildren and seven of them attend Centennial Elementary School just a few hundred feet from the intersection.

When she takes them to school, she said she sees people are not stopping at the stop sign, going through the intersection two at a time, and not waiting for the crossing guard.

She said deputies do come out and patrol the area but when they are not there, drivers don't behave.

"That a child gets hurt or even worse; that is one of the biggest fears that I have, that a child gets hurt," she said.

Dominguez said her problem is not with the school district because are plenty of signs and crossing guards.

Her issue is with the drivers. So she is asking drivers to slow down.
