Some parents of students at Albemarle Elementary School are frustrated with how pick up and drop off leads to traffic jams.
"Everything just all out of order here," said Mikietia Eaddy, the mother of a second-grade student.
She said the first day was worse, but Tuesday wasn't much better.
"Traffic is jammed up, parents don't know where to go," she said.
"It's always hectic on the first day of course," neighbor Perry Ingram said.
Ingram has lived next to the school for 20 years and said he sees the same problem every year.
"Because cars were parked on both sides of the street and the buses were also trying to get to school. That only left the middle of the lane for one flow of traffic and people were meeting head on and nobody could go anywhere because nobody would back up," Ingram said.
Ingram said he even went out in the street himself and helped direct traffic because his driveway was blocked.
There are no signs preventing parents from parking on either side of the street.
Channel 9 checked with Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, but they told us they had not received any complaints from parents.
Eaddy and Ingram say either CMS or police should be out here directing traffic.
