The driver is being reckless. You or the crossing guard should take down his license plate number and call the police.

I am not familiar with this particular intersection, but unless there is a center median, drivers are required by law to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks until they completely finish crossing the street (not just clearing your lane).

There have been several cases recently where drivers have hit pedestrians in crosswalks in midtown Palo Alto, mostly likely due to impatience and/or inattention.
