Smarten up!

Posted on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 4:00 AM

"Car-pedestrian collisions are on the rise in Halifax, soaring 70 per cent from January to September, compared to the same period last year." I know the drivers vs cyclists and pedestrians issue is getting very tired and excessively bitched about but the latest stats in the Herald are very damning - especially for male drivers (of which I am one): "Males — despite making up only about 48 per cent of drivers in Halifax — were behind the wheel in 68 per cent of car-pedestrian collisions." Dudes, we (myself included) need to be more patient behind the wheel. And everyone (the gals included) needs to stop sneaking looks at their phones while driving. For example, I thought the dude on Brunswick this morning (driving a redish brown Dodge) had passed away when we stopped at an intersection. His head fell forward immediately and for a moment or two he didn't react when the light turned green. I almost dialed 911 to get him some CPR!. But it truns out he was just messing with something on his lap. A phone perhaps? —Full of beans
