Another item which constantly amazes me is the way young people use crossings .Proper crossing lights have lighted indicators for walking (a person walking) and a big hand held up for “don’t walk”. People constantly ignore these and perhaps because a car is not passing at the time, they walk anyway. What about a car in the process of turning or one hidden by a line of cars waiting to turn? This can be scary for drivers who as like as not, will be held responsible if they strike a pedestrian. Please watch the walk lights and go accordingly, you may live longer!
Winter driving - Keep extra space at all times; in moving traffic, when stopped behind other vehicles and on approach of stopped vehicles. (This tip comes to you from Doug Annett and the Skid Control School at Oakville, Ont.( www.skidcontrolschool.com)
