Funny we were just talking about this. I just got back from my kids school, we were about the use the crosswalk in front, there was a relatively mild traffic back up maybe 1/2 a block long, some guy pulled out of the line across a solid double yellow, blew through the crosswalk in front of the school while we were standing right there, drove up the wrong side of the road, and hung a right, and sped through the remainder of the school zone. He wasn't a kid, probably late forties. It doesn't even surprise me anymore.

i love driving my roadster in oregons willamette valley with all its rural farm roads at 55mph and being able to see the scenery,not so much in az. where everyone go 75mph or better.  i read that phoniex and tucson are the worst in the nation for blowing red lites, and i believe it.you often stop for the lites and 4 or 5 cars a half block back blow on threw. as of october first you can not have a cell phone or hand held devise with in reach of the driver,first offence 1000.00 dollar fine second offence i think is 5000.00 dollar fine plus maybe jail.its about time.

That is a big money ticket, here in Illinois it is only a $75 first offense. Really doesn't matter, while I have the utmost respect for law enforcement officers it is rare to see them ticketing an offender for running a light or talking on the phone/texting. Honestly, I think I could write dozens of citations daily. The system is not broken, it's just not used as it should be.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I have given up driving in heavy commuter traffic. I moved to a small country town six years ago and its much more relaxed. When I used to drive down to get through the city I found it way to stressful in that type of traffic with all the congestion and impatient drivers in their everyday grocery getters. Freeways are way to busy and if you have a breakdown there is nowhere to pull over. Country driving is much more pleasant. Its amazing how most drivers speed in a lot of the USA States and it stuns me why State Govts. dont ticket drives for speeding. They would make millions.

the thing that really blows my mind is everyone speeds through school zones now. Even when I was a 20 yr old crazed street racer maniac, school zones were sacrosanct. Now I see people that have kids in the school speed through the school zone! We have a cell phone law here too, I don't pay much attention as I don't own a cell, but I think its a $500 ticket. No one seems to pay much attention though, hell the other day, I saw some guy driving using an I-pad on his steering wheel! :o
Man, I am looking forward to getting back out to east Maple Ridge. The difference is really noticeable out there as long as you stay on the east side, but once you get west of 223rd, its just like here.

HA!  Around here, there would be six cars in that space between you and the SUV,^^ four in that gap behind the semi, and the fifth car in the line on your right would be 6" off the bumper of the fourth car and on and off the gas trying to get enough space to switch into your lane and immediately nail his brakes. ::) Ask Bowtie if you think I'm exaggerating. ;D

100 miles a day?! Does this mean that if I buy a deuce I have to move further out of town?? :o ;D
It's always nice to go out of the city.
In about two years, I will be. My brother and I have a two acre property on the edge of the rural part of the north side of the Fraser Valley, about 15 miles NE of here. I am renovating the house and building a shop there. When we get out there, I plan to drive the T-bucket every sunny day.

To be honest, I don't even LIKE driving here in in Surrey, its not pleasant at all. The surroundings are ugly, people drive like total morons, the traffic is dense, and people are HYPER aggressive. You cant really get ANYWHERE without using densely packed 4 laners, you are CONSTANTLY being cut off from the front, and tailgated from behind, in heavy traffic. People will turn right out of side streets when you are right on top of them as a matter of course. I cant even drive the six blocks to my kids school without some jackass pulling out of one of those 6 side streets RIGHT in front of me, to the point where I have to plant the brakes, and there is always some asshole 6' off my bumper, and that in heavy traffic with no-where to go. F@CKING MORONS. God I want to get out of here SO BAD. I wouldnt even want to drive a car like a t-bucket here, and you have to drive through 8-10 miles of this shit to get to somewhere where driving starts to be a pleasant activity.
I mostly walk to school to pick my my kid now, because its so much nicer, its rare that I can walk that 6 blocks, SIX FREAKIN BLOCKS, without witnessing the aftermath of a fenderbender. On Tuesday, there was one in the school zone behind our house! IN A FREAKIN SCHOOL ZONE! How the HELL can you have an accident in a SCHOOL ZONE! And this was as school is getting out, at 3 in the afternoon! GOD I WANNA GET OUTTA HERE! ;D

Wow, things have sure changed since my last visit up there. I sure can relate to the sentiment on the idiot drivers in our area, specially after being hit 14 times

14 TIMES??!! :o SOAB!! That's gotta be a record, even for around here! Once I get the house squared away and a shop up, you have to come out for a visit. We'll put a fire in the fire pit, and watch the ravens flying back and forth and cussing us out. Maybe if we are quiet, a couple deer will show up and eat Colins roses, that's always good for a laugh. Man he gets pissed about that! ;D

It'll be different without the Maserati in that lower garage. Nice to see the roof fixed on the upper garage, last time I was there, there was a fallen tree on top of it, with the Jag and Franklin right under it. :o I'd love to come and visit.
