    Tailgating when the roads are as slippery as **** . Saw a 3 car pile up in the most ridiculous spot due to this yesterday. The car in the middle looked like an accordion. Wish people would leave some space.

    Once again some freaking idiot almost hit me. I have to turn left across the highway onto a country road to get home. I have been making this drive home for 20+ years so I know to watch for idiots behind me. So I'm making my turn signalling as always and watching behind me which is a good thing because an idiot tried passing me on my left. Even though there is a no passing sign and a sign indicating a passing lane is in 500meters ahead. Needless to say I have become proficient in braking, yelling, honking and giving the " Bird" all at the same time.

    It is useful to remove all the snow of your vehicle before driving down the T-Can. Especially as it has been several days since it last snowed.


    The driver had only removed snow from windscreen and a tiny bit on each door so xe could use xir mirrors.

    Consumer Reports has an article on dash cameras if you can access your library's database or obtain the March 2017 issue.

    When you're driving on country roads at night, please dip your headlights when approaching

    1) the brow of a hill

    2) a curve

    3) you're right behind another car

    Dazzling another driver is a stupid thing to do.

    I'll add...

    When you're driving at night, please turn ON your headlights.

    Daytime running lights are not enough for you to see properly, and do little for long-range visibility.
    As well, the people behind you cant see you if your tail lights aren't on.

    My last van, a Pontiac Montana, had headlights which automatically switched on when the light level was low. My new one, a Caravan doesn't so I have to remember to switch them on manually. It takes a mere twist of a dial to do so.

    Saw a tip about glare at night for drivers-First for Women had an opthamologist advise that drivers put in a drop of artificial tears in each eye to moisturize the eyes at night and to help deal with glare from oncoming cars (also to reduce one's own light level on the dashboard as well).

    As a pedestrian sometimes out for walks at night, I'm not understanding the overuse of high beams on a couple of streets on relatively clear nights when drivers are still within range of other drivers. Working on my own pedestrian Mirror project to quell the drivers with more beams than sense.

    Darwin Award goes to all the car drivers at night with no visible tailights or headlights on their vehicle while driving on the main street in Ancaster. See this almost every night that I'm walking.

    Too many to list. About a week ago a 20 yr old hopped up on drugs nearly killed my wife. Came off hwy and swerved into on coming traffic. If she wasn't paying attention and swerved out of the way my kids would be motherless. Kicker it was a gorgeous sunny day. Hoping this schmuck never drives again!
