Drivers are idiots

I walk every day in Parksville and I have an experience almost every day on my walk.

I walk every day in Parksville and I have an experience almost every day on my walk.

For instance, today in front of Parksville Elementary School, on the crosswalk, a driver nearly ran me over, then had the nerve to give me the finger as he sped away too fast for me to get his license number (you know who you are).

I quite often sit on the bench in front of city hall and witness drivers failing to come to a complete stop, texting or talking on their cell phones. One driver was texting and eating an ice cream cone as he went through the stop sign with no hands on the steering wheel; luckily there was no one in the intersection.

It seems there is never a police officer around when these things happen which is lucky for the idiot drivers. One out of 10 drivers have the green ‘N’ on the back of their car. Please obey the rules of the road before you kill someone.
