Whatâ€™s the deal with aggressive drivers?
Saturday morning, April 18, in Murrayville: Iâ€™m travelling west down the one-lane road of 48th Avenue, signal to turn left on 217A Street. An aged red pickup truck is speeding directly behind me at 80 clicks!
The 20-something male in the truck drives up onto the south sidewalk and the new bike lane. He takes out three white pylons and passes me on the right.
I honk as a warning, and he looks at me like a deer in headlights.
Whatâ€™s your hurry? Need to get down to the round- about straight away? Only to pile on your brakesâ€¦
Two days prior, heading west in the same area, there was a three-car fender-bender pileup.
A few years back, a lovely, well known elderly lady was killed walking east up the north sidewalk on 48th. Same bad attitude and judgment from that driver in a hit and run.
Your life is too short. Stay calm and drive with common sense and responsibility.
Itâ€™s time for bright yellow speed bumps on 48th. As this area is never monitored by the RCMP, itâ€™s time for safety improvements.
