FORT MYERS, Fla. - Students at Fort Myers High School describe the parent drop-off zone in front of the school as a dangerous gauntlet, after the Lee County Sheriff's Office started working on a "Bump and Run," where a student was tapped by a car and the driver never stopped. 

Students at the school seem to agree that parents need to keep their eyes on the road and their foot on the brake. "I've seen some close calls. Kids walking to school and parents looking away for a second and not see someone" said sophomore Arianna Krauss. 

Students walking into school know they have to look out for themselves. But they also say the problems is not just with the parents. 

The school sent out a text message asking for anyone who witnessed it to come forward with details. Right now, we don't know the condition of the student involved in the "Bump and Run".
