Editor: What has happened to Canadian drivers? We used to be known throughout the world as kind, courteous, safe drivers.
What happened to safe?
Over the last year, I have observed a troubling increase in the number of drivers speeding through not only caution lights, but also red lights.
I’m no angel! I consider myself a fairly aggressive driver. But even I’ve become very watchful of these careless drivers.
I have trained myself to not proceed on a green light until looking both ways.
Did this carelessness happen because the Third Street Bridge was closed? That is about the time it started. We can’t blame it on COVID-19.
Please slow down before some kid on a bike, or an elderly person in a power chair, gets hit at a crossing. One careless slip could change your life and your family’s lives forever.
