An Open Letter to Toronto’s Drivers

2006_12_01crosswalk.jpg
Dear Drivers,
We know that the weather is totally crappy outside, visibility is low, your brakes don’t work as well and you’re annoyed about your shiny car getting all wet. But please, drive carefully out there.
This list compiled by Joe over at Biking Toronto tells me that many of you aren’t thinking straight when you’re operating heavy machinery, and that’s not a good thing.
How else can we explain two hit-and-runs on the elderly in one day, the death of a mom going out for a jog, or a couple hit in a crosswalk. Even police officers aren’t safe.
It’s worth reminding that if you’ve been drinking, please take a cab or transit home or call a friend. Ditto if you’ve been taking cold and flu medication that makes you sleepier than a grizzly bear in January. Cell phones should be turned off. Save that PSP, Nintendo DS or portable DVD player for when you get home. And remember not everyone has the cat-like reflexes to get out of your way when you’re gunning it at 90 km/h.
We know it’s Friday and you want to get home. But don’t get careless, your mistake just might ruin someone else’s weekend.
Sincerely yours,
Torontoist
