Last week, at about 11 a.m. Monday, I was crossing the intersection at 148 Street and 16 Avenue in South Surrey/White Rock.
The light was showing the white “walk” signal, and I was halfway across when I was suddenly faced with a vehicle in my face ready to run me over. I shouted and raised my arms high, and the woman thankfully stopped.
I was in awe when the driver scoffed at me, as to say “get out of my way old man.”
Lady, stop and take a deep breath and slow down. You just about killed someone’s father/husband/brother. This is so common these days. People are stressed to the max, uptight and don’t give a damn for the next person.
It’s so bad driving a vehicle as well. Everyone’s in a hurry. Half of the vehicles have no rear lights. Pickup-truck drivers want control on the roads, and force smaller cars to escape the rudeness.
For what? You will have plenty of time to slow down in a cold jail cell awaiting a sentence for manslaughter.
