    People tend to forget about that whole "in a crosswalk" part.

    And guess what...if they're crossing against a light, even if they're in a crosswalk...SMACK...cuz if they're crossing against a light, it ain't a LEGAL crosswalk. Don't ya just love legalese.

    Of course, I asked a cop about that...he said I could smack the guy, I wouldn't be ticketed for failure to yield...I'd be smacked for reckless driving ONLY if they felt I should have been able to avoid the guy.

    i'm sure the laws are the same for this sort of thing in Canada where that moron ran by and in the USA, people simply are not allowed on the highway, there are signs at every single onramp saying no people, no bikes. motor vehicles only

    Toronto is the place where all the immigrants come to live in canada ( no offense ). Im guessing thats why there are so many bad drivers (first time drivers or something).

    401 is the busiest highway in North America and is a definate pain in the a## through sections like that in toronto. the worst is just a little more east with 10 lanes on each side and still no go. through the cities in sections like that and in jams im not as worried about idiots driving in the wrong lane, got nowhere to go at 30km/h anyway, but out of the cities get out of the way :P

    hmn touchy subject and im not sure how to answer but for arguments sake lets say certain people come from certain places where they are not used to driving and cause crap ... but its not just them, too many native born morons just simply cant drive worth ****. as for other immigrants the europeans only get ****ed off by those that couldnt drive properly if their life depended on it

    Guys, I grew up on teh Texas/Mexico border. I cringed whenever I saw tags from Chihuahua, Mexico.
    They can't understand the US traffic laws, let alone obey them.
    They can't read/understand the traffic signage because it's in English.
    They aren't required (and usually don't) carry insurance unless it's the wealthiest few (who were also schooled in the U.S. and can speak and read English, so they aren't really part of the traffic problem), and drive like they don't give a rat's *** because their car is worth $100 anyway...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
