Karmic bitch

Posted By on Mon, Jan 28, 2019 at 5:22 PM

Hey, I was crossing on the light! You hang a fast left off Spring Garden Road and I am literally running for my life. Had I been 20 years older, I'd be another dead pedestrian. I looked at you through the drivers side window as you careened around the corner but your eyes were locked front. Then—sweet justice—a cop lights you up and pulls you over! I think that death for me and criminal charges for you were both possible had you run me down.

Dear left-turning drivers at Windsor and Young Streets

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2018 at 12:47 PM

When inching ever forward in attempts to sneak through traffic to turn left onto Young Street, try not to take up the whole intersection. There are other people trying to turn left through here onto Bayers Road, and you're blocking our lanes. Stay on your side of the yellow line!

Dear Asshole Drivers

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2018 at 12:12 PM

It seems there is a wide-spread, serious mechanical issue with most cars lately in HRM: All the indicator lights are out on the majority of makes and models, making it impossible to predict which way you are fucking going. This leads to me halting quickly while walking across the street when you almost run me over turning left without a signal and also making me stop within inches of your fucking bumper when you suddenly slam on the breaks to make your turn when driving. Get a clue, that little thingy on the steering wheel tells EVERYONE which way you are turning!

Accessibility woes

Posted By on Tue, May 29, 2018 at 9:45 AM

Please, PLEASE, do not advertise that you are a fully accessible restaurant or store if your idea of accessibility is seating someone who uses a wheelchair in the dark corner of the restaurant where it is everyone else’s last choice and where cutlery is rolled to sit or having a second floor of the store they cannot access. Just say that! Just be real! My sibling is a person who lives with a disability and uses a wheelchair and it is a big production to go on outings via Access-A-Bus because you always have to book far in advance and it is not as easy as going down the street to another restaurant once you arrive. Things like one tiny set of stairs can make a huge difference! We all need to do better for people that have to consider accessibility constantly. It needs to be MANDATORY. It’s 2018! —Yearning for Equal Opportunity

New rules for vehicles?

Posted By on Sun, Nov 19, 2017 at 11:57 AM

This year I have noticed at least half the vehicles do not use their turning indicators and about one in 10 who use their turn indicators do not turn. Also I live on a street off of Transom where there is a lot of construction going on and the contractors use the street as if it is theirs alone including parking on the wrong side of the street and sometimes even blocking the street altogether. I have been out of the province for a while and I'm wondering have the rules of the road changed? —Wayne

Traffic

Posted By on Mon, Sep 18, 2017 at 4:00 PM

I'm gonna totally ignore the complete lack of planning in this city in regards to road construction and just complain about drivers.

Bumper to bumper traffic and of course one or two cars always squeeze in to block the intersection. Thanks! Next, the Armdale roundabout. If you can't read the signs clearly indicating which collector lane you're in and more importantly where its going to take you then you should be on a bus. Then to top it off don't try to change lanes and force your way in after you realize your mistake. The roundabout has solid lines for a reason!

And lastly, cyclists. What's with the one meter rule? If I'm first at a red light and some cyclist nuzzles up to me then I can't legally accelerate. One meter should really work both ways and cyclists should stack in traffic like everyone else. Well mainly those of us that pay taxes, have insurance and buy gasoline.

Slowed down but did not stop!

Posted By on Fri, Sep 1, 2017 at 10:36 AM

To the driver of a small red car turning from Almon onto Windsor. Why did you slow down but not stop for a pedestrian (me) with a dog, halfway through the intersection when you started the turn.  C’mon, use your head. You looked at me like I had two heads—when clearly yours was missing! —Wanna Live

Learn how to pass another cyclist, please!

Posted By on Wed, Aug 23, 2017 at 9:53 AM

To the cyclist in the watermelon helmet who tried to pass me while I was coasting on a downhill in a bike lane: the correct way to pass another cyclist is to ring your bell (if you don't have one, get one! it's an important safety item) and say "on your left" to indicate where you're passing. The incorrect way is to yell "excuse me" over and over (I had no idea this was addressed to me; it was quiet and blended into the background noise) and then say "the bike lane is for biking" as you finally pass. This convention exists for a reason! Cyclists all over recognize it, but even when they don't, it is very clear what is meant when you hear it (unlike "excuse me" which while polite, is functionally useless in traffic). No need to shame anyone going slower than you! Please learn the safety conventions so that you're not being a danger to yourself and others by causing needless confusion. Cyclists get enough hate from drivers, we don't need it from each other. —The Bike Lane Is For All Cyclists

Motor bikes in cycling lanes

Posted By on Tue, Jul 18, 2017 at 9:28 AM

To the woman in shorts driving her full size motorcycle in the cycling lane, 4:30 pm, July 12, heading north on South Park Street: it is illegal to do so. Next time I will get your plate for the police. Ride safe. —Know the Rules of the Road

I ripped out my hair because of you!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 11, 2017 at 4:08 PM

After using Montreal and Toronto's transportation it makes my time spent using Halifax Transit seem like a 10-year prison term. Halifax Transit isn't fit for human consumption! Reading a bus schedule is like reading an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph. As much as I'm concerned for the environment; I just can't take it anymore! I'm gonna have to destroy Mother Nature and save for a car. All thanks to you, Halifax Transit. —Bring Back The Horse Carriages!

Ontario doesn't recognize NS moped license

Posted By on Tue, Apr 4, 2017 at 4:18 PM

I am from NS and moved to Ottawa only to realise my class 5D (regular + moped) NS license is not a class G ML (regular + moped) Ontario license. In NS you can get a D endorsement on your class 5 licence that allows you to drive a motorcycle with an engine of 100cc or less.  In Ontario, that would be a ML licence, meaning Motorcycle Limited speed.

Once exchanging the license here though, the person told me they have no equivalent to a NS class 5D, and I have to start the process all over again.  No thank you. There is a reciprocal agreement between Ontario and the provinces of SK, QC, NB, and PEI for moped licensing, but not NS.

HOWEVER, according to the NS DMV, I am able to switch my (non-existent) Ontario moped license over to a NS moped license. This doesn't sound like a reciprocal agreement at all.

Fuck you and your arbitrary policy, Ontario.  This place sucks. —cptstubing

Entitlement, much?

Posted By on Sat, Feb 18, 2017 at 10:31 AM

So the buses were not running on Valentines Day until the evening. We needed you at work. We were closed on the 13th but we needed you in so you wouldn't get further behind in your shit. When we asked you to take a cab, you assumed that we were paying for it. I found this out when you handed me a receipt of over 35 bucks, telling me I need to either reimburse you from the petty cash or cut a cheque. Excuse me?? It's not the employer's fault that the buses weren't running. When I told you this, you tell me it wasn't your fault either and that it wasn't your fault that you have to take the bus. How was is not your fault though, really?! You don't have a fucking car! Everyone with cars managed to get in, at least late. When you insisted we reimburse you, I told you no and to get a car. You respond "with that shit 28 thousand salary you guys pay me?!". Hey bud, the door is right there if you want to leave. The employees with cars had to spend time shovelling their driveway and getting their vehicles out. And do we pay for their gas every day? Nope. So why should we pay for your cab ride just because the buses weren't running? We've never told you to not take the bus and cab instead, did we? Nope. Fuck off with your entitlement. You're not even a stellar worker. –Mr. Supervisor

Corner of sackville and South Park street

Posted on Tue, Nov 29, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I am starting to loose count of how many times I've almost been hit by a car when I have my right of away AKA the little walking man signal. Where the fuck are you going that is so important and urgent that you can't pay attention, clearly I have time to look at my surroundings since I've avoided being hit numerous times.

#52 Rider

Posted on Mon, Nov 28, 2016 at 2:22 PM

What the hell is Metro Transit thinking sticking a driver in training (or being tested-not really sure which) during rush hour traffic?! The #52 was over 20 minutes behind schedule this morning heading into Burnside! Thanks for making me work extra time this week to make up for your bad decision. —angry rider
