When driving the Coquihalla highway this past Friday the 18th, I was rear ended by a small car. There was no damage to my vehicle, except for two small paint scuffs from his license plate holder, and there was no damage to his car.
My question is, what do we do about stress and anger on the roads due to drivers that are endangering lives of others? What do you recommend to help get your mind off a negative experience while driving?
When we lived in Penticton we would often go to the beach after dinner, parking on Lakeshore Drive. This was nose in angle parking on the lake side of the two way street. If you were lucky enough to find a spot, parking was easy. However, leaving could be a problem, especially if something big was parked to your right.
I have a concern about the road between Port Alberni and the West Coast. When they redid the slow vehicle pullouts, they dressed them up to look exactly like passing lanes. Now everyone travels in those lanes. The only difference between the pullouts and passing lanes is that the pullouts don't have signs telling drivers that the lane is ending (why would it, it's not a travel or a passing lane - it's a slow vehicle pullout).
There's nothing like a bit of extreme weather to create problems for snow removal equipment. All that snow has to be pushed somewhere in order clear the streets for drivers. Vehicles parked on those streets can present a problem.
Can you please tell me what would be a safe speed to set speed limiters on our delivery drivers vans owned by the company? Is there a need to set speed limiters higher in order for the driver to be able to pass?
We had our Strata AGM last night and it was brought to our attention that there is an uninsured car parked in our underground parking. Could you please let me know the laws around this?
I learned early in my policing career that driving on a flooded road could be hazardous. What looked to be a few inches of water running on a city street hid a 2 m deep hole caused by a broken water line.
Regardless of the fact that I paid $75 to renew my driver's license, it isn't mine. In fact, it states on the back of the license that "This card remains the property of the issuing agency and must be surrendered upon request." If that request is made or the law requires its return there is no refund of fees and you must give it back.
The case of Okines v Mr. Rent-A-Car involves a collision between Justine Okines, a cyclist riding through, and Brodie Davison, a driver turning left in the intersection Davie Street and Pacific Boulevard in Vancouver.
