BC Bad Driver of the Week - 971JPV

One does not need to do anything overtly dangerous to be considered a bad driver. Simple thoughtlessness or failing to consider other road users can create a hazardous situation as well.

BC Bad Cyclist of the Week

This video takes place at the intersection of Jingle Pot Road and the Nanaimo Parkway in Nanaimo, B.C. The rider of this electric bicycle is behaving like a pedestrian by operating on the left side of the highway and using crosswalks. This is not an issue if the rider dismounts and pushes the cycle.

B.C.'s Bad Driver of the Week 2

BC's Bad Driver of the Week this week is one that has difficulty turning left from a business parking lot onto a busy highway. The vehicle turns into a two way left turn lane, drives along it for about a block and then moves to the right when traffic moves enough to let the driver in. Legally, the only way out of a two way left turn lane is to turn left. Moving out of it the way this driver did is an offence.

BC's Bad Driver of the Week

Perhaps a public shaming could be effective in convincing some drivers that they need to share the roadway a bit better with the rest of us. Now that I have my own dash cam I am in a position to highlight how some people put themselves ahead of others when it comes to convenience over road safety.
