Driv­ers, hold your horses on Hwy. 3

Windsor Star - - OPINION -

I was home for the hol­i­days and couldn’t help but no­tice that driv­ing on High­way 3 has not im­proved. What’s the rush ev­ery­one? Please air out the ants in your pants and take a breather. The Tim­mies line won’t get any shorter. Jok­ing aside, I mean this in all kind­ness, and in the in­ter­est of ev­ery­one’s safety. Not only that, but by speed­ing and chang­ing lanes, we’re ac­tu­ally slow­ing down traf­fic. It’s called phan­tom traf­fic, where vari­a­tions in speed (caused from, for ex­am­ple, need­ing to break due to speed­ing) cre­ate a chain re­ac­tion lead­ing to, well, traf­fic. Point be­ing, drive safe. You’ll get where you need to go when you get there. Sasha Oliveira, Ot­tawa
