Eish my poor imagination, I have this vision of these guys standing at the robots going to the drivers saying:


5 Rands boss, I make it green for you, hey you guys, this one paid let him through.

Dear that Guy and Girl.

Yeah you

Thank you.

After getting dragged out of bed at sparrows fart this morning, and packing the banner, grabbing some really horrible coffee on the way and planning a totally illegal activity, The Goose and I went to hang our THINK BIKE banner on a bridge over the highway.

Thank you for flashing your lights, Thank you for hooting, Thank you for waving, Thank you for acknowledging our efforts to make the roads a little safer. Thank you for making us smile, Thank you to the truckers who blew their air horns and thank you to the authorities for turning a blind eye.

Thank you for making our day a little brighter and Thank you for taking that little more care today.

THANK YOU

Dear bonehead pedestrian guy

Do you have a death wish? You chose to walk across the street on a red light. It was dark and rainy.....You are so lucky I saw you at the last second and was able to stop to avoid hitting you. :roll:

Drivers are not the only idiots out there. Often times drivers get the blame for a pedestrian getting hit; but often it's the pedestrian who caused the accident.

Dear 11 year old little kid, did you really think I wouldn't know it was you who stole my sons airsoft gun? My son was going to trade you a bag full of airsoft bb's for a DS game, which I must say is a crappy trade on your part but whatever, but Harley had a dentist appointment so we just left the bb's on the door step trusting you would leave the game. Not only did ou not leave the game but you took my son's airsoft gun as well. Gee. I wonder who could have done it. Golly I don't know.

Thank you 11 year old kids mom for punishing your little brat and making him return everything. 11 year old brat, Im almost sorry for you because your mom made you call and apologize to Harley and you busted out crying when you got me on the phone instead. :laughing: Almost sorry.

That reminded me of the time a neighbourhood kid put a live garter snake in our mail slot. It scared the living daylights out of my child.....I went to the parents of the kid....they gave him heck.

I agree! But, coming from a girl who is NOT a stupid pedestrian but who was hit by a car, sometimes it really is 100% the driver's fault!

:crazy:

I agree it's usually a driver....but people who jay walk, cross against a red light, wear all black on a dark rainy night.....a woman got killed by a bus a few years ago because the bus driver could not see her. She was wearing a black burka at night in the rain.....there was nothing visible for the driver.....if only people would wear or carry something light so they could be seen.

I was driving my bus in the rain one night making a left turn. I was mid turn about the crosswalk part when suddenly a light appeared before me. I had to brake hard to avoid hitting the old guy in the crosswalk. He was dressed all in black.....I could not see him until he turned on a flashlight and pointed it toward me so I could see the light.

I agree Blues, it's not cool for them to wear all black at night. We've gotta have something to aim for!

Dear old lady.....WTF were you thinking doing a u-turn on a road that drivers treat like a freeway?

I kid you not...we're all driving along Nordel when suddenly we all have to slow down to an almost stop....this old lady decided to do a u-turn around some construction cones and head back up the hill. :shock:

I hope motor vehicles catches up with her soon.

Dear bicycle riders. I. hate. you. all.

Yes you, yes all of you. The speed limit is not merely offering advice, if you cannot make it up the hill at 40mph, get on the sixteen feet of sidewalk. No, that parking space is not for your twelve pound, 4 foot long tin can. And your cute little "share the road" bumper stickers are asinine, share the bike lane *****.

Here in BC it is illegal to cycle on the sidewalk. I agree it might be an inconvenience for a couple of minutes until you can move over a bit to go around the cyclist, but, bicycling is a legitimate form of transportation...albeit slower.
Bicycling gets heavily promoted as an alternative to driving a car.

So take a breath and just move over a bit to go past them. Please.

The sidewalk is sixteen feet wide for a reason. And it's not because there are a lot of people that are sixteen feet wide.

Bicyclists are the worst here in Seattle, cops hate them all too. They think they own the place. Most areas have bike lanes and they still ride in the street. And I didn't make that stuff up, I once pulled into a restaurant and a guy actually had "parked" his bike in a parking space. I have a picture of it, I always wanted to submit it to FailBlog or something.

Dear That Guy...yes you with the company name a log emblazened all over your van. Yes, it was I who reported you. You were texting while attempting to drive....on to and over the Port Mann Bridge...

You were wobbling and drifting in your lane....I was riding on my motorcycle in the lane passing you. You were an accident waiting to happen.

Dear that guy in a riced out Civic,
I did not appreciate you wanting to race my full size pickup through rush hour traffic.
I also did not appreciate you flipping me off when my full size pickup outran your POS civic on the next onramp to the interstate, even though I had a full sized computer desk in the bed.
Jealousy does not become you, and neither does speed.
Sincerely,
Guy laughing and waving in front of you.
