Spent 10 days in Victoria area. Drivers there are so much more courteous than here.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

I suspect it has a lot to do with the amount of traffic lights, and their timing.

I could find no hard numbers to back this up, but believe there is a correlation
to how people drive as to ease of flow.

I spent some time in the Kamloops area and found there to be a good flow,
and more courtesies extended there also.

Uh oh. :swear: You okay Dirty?

And I was contemplating why the weather is so co-operative today and yet I wasn't in the gardens that much.
Is it okay to have friends on all sides of the political spectrum? Or do I have to choose?

Foreward:
I travel for a living up, and down the Valley.

Observation:
Everywhere that the MOT has installed "No-post" barriers to divide the North from the South
lanes of Hwy 97, I have noticed more and more people stopped due to flat tires.

Add in 'no-posts' along the right to keep cliff jumping at bay,

and.

Just as in snowy conditions there being nowhere for the snow to blow to, which causes
swirling and white-out conditions in the vortex created.
In the summer months and drier conditions it leaves nowhere for the debris to blow to.

Thus, my not so simple thought of the day is that the build-up of debris being held in the roadway
leaves a much larger chance of experiencing a flat tire.

More so in the left lane as there is substantially less shoulder.

I'd say they look sketchy no matter what the temperature.


And pants slung so low that cracks see sunshine? Piercings with Jewelry that makes them look like they fell into a fishing tackle box? Tattoos that look bad now....in 50 years on, will they look better on aged, sagging skin?

Seriously questionable fashion statements. They come and they go.
