Travelling around yesterday and today, during the 'slightly' inconvenient weather situation, it's become glaring that our Ministry of Transport [ICBC] drivers services has indeed lowered the bar of acceptability of driver skills to get a license. This morning, in New Westminster, people are just blowing right through major intersections oblivious to the fact that the lights are not working. Luckily, New West Police are picking them off like fish in a barrel at the two lights I came upon. Yesterday heading to Fort Langley, completely stupid drivers seeing tree branches fall off trees, decide universally to stop under the trees instead of getting past the trees fast in between wind gusts.
And finally, unrelated to the wind storm, I witnessed what can best be described as a "new resident" young female in a newer Dodge Caravan, in Guildford Mall trying to park, for about 15 minutes, even when two of her passengers jumped out to help direct, as if she was driving a Kenworth pulled double trailer, and ended cup scuffing two cars. When they noticed me watching, they attempted to move to an entirely different area of the mall, where I followed them from a big distance. I called the mall cops, gave them the license and type of car they hit, and where they were now, he came out and looked and took down info. I hope hit and run x2 is the least of their problems.
Lack of competence of basic given privileges, and downright lack of caring about anyone else around them, continues to be in my top 5 pet peeves about humanity.
