Canada’s Worst Drivers living right here

This past Saturday I was driving along and listening to my tunes when I saw a young man ahead waiting at the crosswalk.

Dear editor:

This past Saturday I was driving along and listening to my tunes when  I saw a young man ahead waiting at the crosswalk.

I hit my brakes and he ran across with his dog (while) from the opposite direction another car was coming. She — I believe it was a woman driver — was driving fairly slow but she didn’t stop for the young man, she just kept driving.

I was sure she would stop when she saw him but she didn’t. She just kept moving through and actually bumped him.

He had to halt his dog or it would have been run over!

He finally had to hit her hood to make her stop. I have never been so shook up by something as I had with this. It was like a bad movie — you saw him; why didn’t you stop?

Later that night, my friend posted on Facebook that she almost got ran over when this guy decided he had to go to Seto’s and he wasn’t going to wait for her to cross.

I posted a few months ago about the terrible drivers in Port Hardy and since then, the drivers have gotten worse!

They don’t stop at the stop signs. They don’t use their signals when they are turning. They don’t wait for pedestrians and nudge their car forward as if they had somewhere’s to go. Where can we go in a little town like Port Hardy?!

I am mystified why people have to speed. The only reason to speed in this town is if you or your passenger is dying or you or or your passenger is pregnant and about to give birth.

Drivers still drive drunk and they still text and/or talk on their phones when they’re driving.

If people are waiting for someone to die, I don’t think they’re gonna have to wait too much longer. I am getting more and more afraid as the days go by because our drivers are the worst in B.C. and probably should be registered on that show, Canada’s Worst Drivers.
