Drivers don’t know the law
I am dismayed with the amount of distracted drivers there are in Red Deer.
I drive across the city at least four times a day and it always amazes me how many folks are looking at their phones, texting, eating or drinking.
Here is a prime example of distracted driving or possibly a driver not knowing the rules of the road:
To the lady that turned onto 30th Avenue off Mackenzie Road at 4 o’clock on Saturday, Aug. 30, you need to pay attention or read your driver’s manual again.
You sat at the stop sign long enough to drink out of your large cup, then proceeded to turn in front of me when I had the right of way after I stopped.
The vehicle that is going straight at a two-way stop has the right of way.
I hope you see this and take heed before you cause an accident.
I was driving the black Navigator and did not appreciate your righteous glare.
I also would like to remind folks there is a good reason why playground zones are 30 km/h. Little ones and dogs frequently dash out onto the roadway.
I live across from a playground and very few drivers pay attention to their speed.
