Driv­ers the is­sue, not High­way 3

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

I am tired of hear­ing how un­safe High­way 3 is. The prob­lem is not the road, it is the driv­ers.

In the early morn­ing hours, I have wit­nessed peo­ple pull out and pass 12 cars at a time. Pass­ing on a solid line is nor­mal. The OPP are not to blame. They can’t be ev­ery­where. Bad driv­ers are ev­ery­where. Ev­ery­body is in a hurry and they are al­ways late. I am re­ally be­gin­ning to think some­one is is­su­ing driver’s li­cences free in candy boxes. In the past 10 years, I have seen three school buses run off the road. I would have re­ported these bad driv­ers, but I would have had to drive as bad as they do just to get a plate num­ber to re­port. There is no an­swer to this prob­lem. Get a ticket, pay your lawyer and you are back on the road — noth­ing learned or fixed. I have no prob­lem with stupid driv­ers try­ing to kill them­selves on our roads. I do have a prob­lem with them tak­ing in­no­cent peo­ple with them.
