Illegal parkers!

To those who work in the Agricola Street area: Please don’t park on Agricola Street! You are illegally parked and you make it difficult for clients of the small businesses on Agricola! Park in residential areas and walk a little farther! Be considerate of the community you work in!

Drivers

Dear people, there's this thing in all cars in trucks—it's called the turn signal indicator. Most, if not all, know this exists, however many do not what it is for. Please go to YouTube or Google for operating instructions before you get yourself killed.

Bikes, lanes and automobiles

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2019 at 2:36 PM

Do all jackass drivers in this province get a driver’s permit, regardless of incompetency and stupidity? I drive, walk and use my bicycle in good weather. I’m 63, and I have seen/experienced my share of close calls and collisions. While cycling in a bike lane in Halifax (during daylight) over the Labour Day Weekend, a driver trailing my bike-riding wife drove parallel to me, when I was riding carefully on my bicycle. We’re side-by-side on Lower Water Street. Not quite certain what this clueless-looking driver wanted to do, I started braking. Sure enough, the driver cuts in front of me and crosses the bike lane into a parking lot. WTF? Another head-shaking close call, courtesy of a careless and crack-brained motorist.

How to solve traffic congestion in peninsular Halifax—NOT

Posted By on Thu, Aug 29, 2019 at 3:02 PM

Throw more asphalt and concrete at it? I think those 40-foot long asphalt ramp thingies on South Park Street are raised bike lanes, and now there are four-inch-high concrete bollards along the rest of SP Street as well. I left work at noon today, and the buses and big trucks going opposite ways could barely squeeze past each other without scraping their sides. How is reducing SP St. to a single lane in either direction going to solve traffic congestion? It won't. Every time a bus stops, traffic will get backed up behind it—and I've heard that city hall wants to reduce Spring Garden Road to a single lane in either direction as well. Are they insane?

I hate motorists as much as the next bloke, but they have to drive and park SOMEWHERE. And I can see those asphalt ramps and bollards getting smoked by the first snowplow that passes them this winter. And when the city demolishes the Cogswell Interchange? Best dust off your sturdiest walkin' shoes, folks, 'cuz it'll be the only way to get around that won't make you bonkers over the next five years!

Full moon driving?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 23, 2018 at 2:12 PM

Yesterday I drove 40 minutes from Halifax to Dartmouth and two people cut out in front of me. I honked and was ignored, then at my destination I had to honk again when another driver went to back out of a parking area and didn't look and see me. Do you like raised insurance and wrecking other people's vehicles? Look where you're going and stop trying to put your own needs ahead of others'.

Double bitch

Posted on Wed, Jul 6, 2016 at 4:00 AM

First off to the unqualified clowns who "built" the new long lake trail. Way to fucking go! Tear down a perfectly portioned trail for what? to drive a dump truck through? Don't know about you but dogs don't wear work boots nor do people on a sunny day potentially with strollers. Nice work for your suburbia. I bitch but have succumbed to this bullshit trail as it does contain my fave spot so bitch number two is fuck off with breaking glass! Get it. old party spot also ruined from bullshit trail. fuck off with smashing. We begrudgingly still go Also thanks for all the lumber from your horrible clean up job, that's a plus —Pretty sure we've met
