The Day The Suits All Cried

Yesterday, Environics released the results of a study commissioned by Goodyear Canada about driving attitudes. It found that 74 percent of Canadians hate drivers “who engage in road rage/impolite gestures.” Another 72 percent are angered by motorists who tailgate or follow too closely, who allow their doors to hit the car next to them, or who speed up to block others from passing or changing lanes. Environics’ Vice-President of Consumer Research David MacDonald added that those who were most critical of other drivers were guilty of their own bad driving habits. Speaking of tragic ironies: Tuesday, at the height of morning rush hour, we saw the crumpled remains of a Porsche Carrera and a Dodge Infiniti—the result of a collision at the corner of University Avenue and King Street. One of the drivers was adamant that he was in the right because he had the green. But the police officer at the scene said, “yeah, but you’re supposed to let them finish making the left-hand turn.”
