Letters to the Editor

Worst anywhere

I am responding to Ian Smith’s letter about local drivers in the Feb. 14 edition of The NEWS (‘Worst anywhere’) and can only say he is 100 per cent right.

I also have never seen worse drivers in the world.

As Smith described, you can see more and more drivers driving without any lights at limited vision times and people driving with a dog on their knees and even new cars without the legal daytime running lights.

Do these drivers know that they are trading a lot of security by disconnecting the daytime running lights?

I see a lot people don’t like the laws in Canada. Last week, I saw more than 20 dogs on the beach of Rathtrevor Park knowing that this is not allowed.
