What is happening to our community?
It’s pretty bad when, on a Sunday afternoon, a 70-year-old man coming home from the pool had the life scared out of him because some nut road-raged his vehicle.
It was Grey Cup afternoon on 16 Avenue with almost no traffic. Suddenly, I look at my rear-view mirror to see the silver grill of a pick up truck, almost three feet from my bumper.
I am travelling in the right lane doing the speed limit. My street is just ahead, and I signal, and slow to make the turn. The jerk follows me, almost rubbing my bumper, and persists to follow me home.
Luckily, I somehow shook him off, and I went home trembling all day. I have heart trouble; I could have died!
Numerous times, I have written about speed along 16 Avenue and the lack of RCMP on this busy road.
There must be a crackdown on these young men driving pickup trucks, thinking they own the road! They just cannot stand following a small car, and use bullying tactics to get their way.
This is a town full of seniors who are not used to hurrying for anyone.
So if you want to speed, I suggest to go to the race track.
I shall have my pepper spray for the next one.
