I was driving to work in Brampton today on a busy two lane street... An entitled car decides it's OK to stop on a live right lane in front of traffic lights to wait for their kids to come out from school.... There were no kids in sight yet... They expect the whole world to change lanes to go around them...
I've had this happen to me as well. Not only near schools, but on any major roadway I have seen this. Peeps will stop at the bus stop or near intersections to pickup or drop off someone. It is dangerous since they do it on major roadways and don't even signal properly.

It's not right but still not as bad if you just doing a quick drop off.... But to sit there with your four way flashers for as long as you need to.... Taking up the entire lane indefinitely...

Is it just me or are the areas with most immigrants the ones with the highest insurance rates (and accidents)?

Brampton, Markham, etc.

I see where you coming from. In these times if you say this, people will call you out being a racist.

??? Speeding through strip mall parking lots to beat lights? They are lucky that no one was killed! Who has the thought process that this is a good idea? So angry right now, F this person and their self centered 'the world revolves around me' mentality. Hope the car is un-drivable, they are charged and insurance doesn't cover their idiocy!!!
Speeding through gas stations is even worse, I see it all the time in rush hour traffic. Not only is it dangerous, you don't really save that much time.

And it doesn't seem to stop them. Red light running is even worse. I`m at the point now even when I have a green light I'm cautious.

Same here. Only accident I was ever in was because someone failed to stop at a red

One of these would have made me sad, two..well...it's just tragic. Hopefully the one guy found the other hubcap.

Many parts of the GTA remind me of the 3rd world where road rules and law and order don't apply. Thats why I got a dashcam for those unfortunate times my travels take me thru there.

This is why i don't bemoan red light cameras. People complain its a cash grab, So What? If you don't run a light, you wont get a ticket.
