There are plenty of words used to describe stupid people but are socially unacceptable to many:
Lunkhead,
Dope
Moron
Imbecile
Fool
None of which can properly describe the lack of spacial awareness required to drive among those of superior intelligence.

The lady trying to park a van in a leveled garage, the other day. It’s not a specialized art form. Backing in and out only to get back to where you started, repeatedly, isn’t going to cut it. How could you keep messing up so many times, even with the large spot you managed to nab? Just learn to do it properly, eh?


*Maybe it is a specialized art form.

Driving down Harvey tonight with no tail lights on.

We stop at a red light.

"Turn your lights on"

"My lights ARE on"

"You have no tail lights"

"But my lights are ON".

Clueless....

Loser in a recent red pickup, you stopped about two inches off my bumper. Then you got all angry and humped the cement median lurching forward because you couldn't wait for the small line of cars to move forward so you just barged into the left turn lane. That's after you tailgated me and tried to pass on my left just as my lane is ending. Merge, man. Just let people do their thing without being tailgated or hassled. It's not like I was going slow.

You mad bro? You looked mad. Calm down. Use a bit of common courtesy.

The Dark gray Hyundai Elantra, 4 door at Athens pool/gym today Nov. 21
The whole parking lot, free spots down the line only 2 cars away and you need to park in the no parking area while you head to the gym for over 1 hour.
Your a lazy loser.

Merging into traffic flow at 50-60kmh:

Do not simply "stop".

You're going to get rear ended. You'll cause a hold up of traffic. You'll make people mad, bro.

Adjust your speed, look, check, and get into a safe space (not SJW terminology) without affecting anyone else.

If you "stop" - do not collect $200. You failed at driving. You are a public nuisance. Take your drivers licence to ICBC and hand it in, or just burn it.

The cyclists are always bellyaching about drivers not looking out for them.
The bikers are always bellyaching about drivers not looking out for them.
Today a cyclist and a biker ran into each other.
Sweet, sweet irony.

To the person in the white BMW off Dehart today. YES, you really do need to use your signal light to prove you intend to turn right instead of making me, in the other lane wondering if you were going to cut me off to your left , causing me to slow down and maybe causing an accident.

Did your turn signal fluid run out?

There are terrible cyclist, bikers & drivers. Sooner or later 2 or more will come together & hit each other.
I can't stress this enough, if you cycle or are a pedestrian. Please do yourself & others a big one by wearing reflective clothing & having a light on your bike. No one wants to meet by accident, okay.

It is ironic that the largest beasts on the road are mandated by government to have "always on" lights so the vulnerable can have that "deer in the headlights" moment ... in a sense I think the fact that the car industry has done everything to keep the driver safe that lack of actually needing to do something to keep you safe has spilled over onto other road users ...

And no, I don't believe there are accidents ... hindsight has always shown that something more could have been done to avoid a collision ... but yes, you need to be visible so that others on the roads can react appropriately ...
