Stop, look and listen

July 25, 2014 - Karin Elton
I got a chuckle yesterday during my lunch hour. I was traveling west on East Fairview Street (shouldn't it be Avenue?) and North Bruce Street and I thoughtfully stopped at the stop sign there. A young guy was driving on Bruce and also considerately stopped at his corner — except there was no stop sign.

The young guy in the car behind him did not appreciate the first guy’s extra careful driving. Luckily he was paying attention, because he could have rear-ended the guy because he was not expecting him to stop.

I waited for the cars to go. The second guy yelled out his open window — “You have the right of way, you idiot!”

The first guy had his window open as well and quickly followed the second guy's suggestion.

It’s rare that you get that open line of communication between vehicles. Lots of times I wish the driver in front of me could hear my helpful prompts: “Use your blinker!” or conversely, “Either turn or turn off your blinker!”
