To the idjiot turning from Harvey Ave aka Hwy 97 onto Gordon Ave, in the dark, it'd be nice if you weren't talking on your cell phone. Copy? :swear:

I was going straight through an intersection in Rutland, around lunch (across Highway 33). Donbass coming the opposite way decided to turn right in front of me. We would have wrecked each other had I not hit the brakes.

I mean, he barely even looked!

To the young lady in the white Honda ... the stop line is "before" the crosswalk, not after ... that was why you saw my smiling face so close today as you almost rolled through the stop sign ... sorry that we didn't have more time for me to point that out directly, but you seemed to be in quite the hurry so I understand ... places to go, people to hit ...

This same scenario just happened to me downtown Westbank. This lady stopped and then started to drive forward as if she didn’t even see me. SMH I think she was too busy contemplating what she was going to order once she got into the Starbucks drive through.

Yesterday was a real gem. I was going down Casorso Road around 8:30 am, when I saw a white car bottomed out on top of a dirt mound. He must have been going fast because this mound was on the other side of a deep ditch, and it wouldn’t have been a small feat to get on top of it. Too bad I didn’t have time to stop for a picture and a tow.

Donbass.

I stop at a red light. You stop to my right. I see you driving your dirty beater van with an assortment of dents.

Grease drips down your chin and joins the collection of stains on your sweatshirt.

You're oblivious to my glare. I see you scrolling through your cellphone. Clicking apps, checking your texts and emails. Like a high tech Jabba The Hut. Not surprisingly you fail to see the light turn green. Then a mad dash to drop your phone and get going to your next fast food feast.

I see you. I see dumb people.

They are so easy to see every day. It's like shooting fish a barrel with a stick of dynamite.

To the middle aged Blonde (fake) with the big eyelashes (also fake) driving an Audi A4 convertible on Benvoulin Rd.
The speed limit is 60 there not 50 and if you quit blabbing to your passengers and waving your hands around you might figure that out.

To the mid-size grey SUV traveling westbound on Bernard (around 8am today), when a traffic light (Bernard & Ethel) flashing red in all directions you are to consider it a 4 way stop. You are an idiot for not stopping and giving right of way to other driver who was stopped, who just happened to be to your right of you.

impo drivers need a refresher on the rules of a 4 way stop, on my walks I will sit and watch at Rose & Ethel. How badly these rules are broken.

I can't really call them idiots, but someone did not
check all the angles.

There is a new parking lot just North of the Airport Way intersection,just off 97,
It's night security and convenience lights blaze quite nastily into traffic.
Definite eye-ball spots inducer.
A slight tweak and a shield, definitely in order.

I do plan to notify..Not complain...notify.
