After reading about the vehicle that exploded on a Vancouver street – apparently the result of acetylene gas accidently being ignited by a remote vehicle door opener – it is inconceivable to witness the operators of many vehicles with B.C. licence plates lining up for cheap gas in Bellingham, Wash., filling copious numbers of jerry cans with fuel, and then placing them in their trunks – or even worse, in the open backs of vans and sports utility type vehicles.

Do these people have a death wish or are they just plain stupid? They are a threat to everyone in their vehicles, as well as innocent bystanders.
