I remember playing kick-the-can with Betty and her brother along with my siblings while in middle school and junior high. We played in the street interrupted only by us yelling "CAR!". That sound essentially froze the game in its tracks until the vehicle safely passed. Then ended by parents blinking the porch light signalling the time to come inside. Good times...
