Charmion BS: tis the season of auto insanity (10) RE: BS: tis the season of auto insanity 27 Nov 19

Move to Canada, Donuel. Pick a small town. Your life will improve dramatically.

Yes, we have nutty drivers and pre-holiday sales, plus we have ugly weather. But the nuttiness usually takes place in the context of the ugly weather, not the pre-holiday sales.

It's raining stair-rods in Stratford this morning, and Environment Canada promises a racing cold front that will bring winds gusting above 80 kph, a dramatic drop in temperature, and heavy snow by supper time. I'm glad I'm not on Highway 401 today, fighting for space among the 18-wheelers.

But on Stratford's main commercial streets this morning, all the drivers were behaving as if they had a licence examiner in the car, probably because the visibility is crap. The parking lot at Sobey's, which can get chaotic on, say, the Saturday before Easter, was serenity itself. I assume all this prudence arises from our reluctance to prang each other and, thus, incur the insane charges associated with repairing collapsed bodywork.
