Another long weekend - be cautious

I worry. I know. But I'm a Gramma.
There are crazy people out there, and they don't care if they risk YOUR life!

And having driven from Muskoka to Perth, Merrickville, Kemtpville, Ottawa, Bells Corners, and many km across from Central to S.E. Ontario and back, I've seen the traffic.  Crazy people taking our lives.

A total of 16 people died during the Canada Day long weekend on the water and on land. I hope this long weekend is better.

Think she was on the phone?

Then tailgating.

Many of these guys are weaving in and out of traffic.
Important people

Bobbing and weaving - on the phone?

Or those who see nothing wrong with parking here and getting a paper out of the box. We were planning on turning right, but there was traffic coming. Too bad they are so old and weak they cannot park safely and walk across the road to get a paper! (Don't criticize the coffee, you'll be old and weak one day!)
Then there are those who park illegally!

These guys were right behind someone else who parked here, running their engines.

Pedestrian access ramp
I love the parking spaces for those with babies, or pregnant, or with disabilities.

This woman had to ask the car to move since they had parked in front of the ramp and she wanted to get her stroller up into the sidewalk at Chapters.

The people in the car were picking up a couple of passengers.

Be careful out there.
Remember somebody out there loves you or your victim.

From the signs I saw on the highway going 50km/hr over the speed limit could have some pretty serious consequnces and the new 0% alcohol for those 21 and younger. Wish we had this in the states
