what are the chances of that happening? ie same color, car make and generation. Never seen that before.
I'd put money on that happening in Richmond (BC).

I don't wanna laugh. I heard karma is a bitch. How do people survive in the GTA? Sooner or later you guys will need death race or mad max style cars.

I wonder why....hmmm
Same issue in Richmond BC. Look up the demographics of the city and come to your own conclusions.

They should just stick to what they know. Bicycles.

I had to post because it mentions the accident was caused trying to get their kids to school on time. How about setting an example for your kids and leaving early enough to get there.

We live right next to an elmentery school. Our street is one block over and then a street prependicular runs in front of the school parking lot. This stret is COVERED in NO STOPPING alloowed digns as well as BUS only zones. There are cones blocking the entrance to the lot which is for teachers only. There are drop off zones about 100 meters from the entrance and several side streets with open parking within a 5 minute or less walk.

What do i see every day:
1.Parking 1 meter from the crosswalk sop you can't see if anyone is crossing the street.
2.Parking IN the crosswalk.
3. Parking in zones marked NO STOPPING getting out and walking the kids across the street and gabbing with other parents for 20 minutes.
4.Stopping at a stop sign. Getting out leaving the car running and walking kids to school.

I watched a lady the other day screaming at a parking enforcement officer that she shouldn't get a ticket for being in a no stop zone.."Who am I supposed to get my kids to school...they won't let me drive onto the school playground (imageine not wanting a car plowing into 5 year old kids) if I can't stop here what can i DO?!"

How about getting off your lazy A** arriving 5 minutes earlier and walking 200 M from an open side street?

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

Brampton, Markham, etc.
An immigrant (at some point of time) calling others out. Such irony.
