Letters to the Editor

LETTERS: Misleading by example

Editor:

I have always been led to believe that as adults, we are to set an example of appropriate behaviour and courtesy for youth to emulate.

It seems that this does not apply to the automobile drivers on 148 Street in front of Semiahmoo Secondary.

On any day of a school week – startup, lunch or school’s day end – one can witness the epitome of the worst aspects of driving to be found anywhere in B.C.

Here, one can observe all the conduct that you wouldn’t ever want your son or daughter to do behind the wheel – talking on a cellphone, cutting in, inappropriate gestures, road rage and much more.

Let us hope the students of Semiahmoo don’t copy this driver buffoonery or, heaven help us all, we are doomed.

You can be sure the first student to lose his/her life in front of Semiahmoo will be at the hands of an adult parent driving like a moron.

James Golightly, White Rock
