MY DRIVE INTO WORK IN TODAY’S SNOW
By John Ross Harvey
Snow started around 7:10am in Woodbridge
I brushed the car 4 times before taking my
Children to their school bus stop
While waiting for the bus
At least 4 cars ran the stop sign there
Can they not see it?
They hop in to their completely Snow covered vehicle
And drive as is.
A Wiper blade swipe pass, a half rolled down window
Maybe some defroster lines
And they think they are safe?????????
As on a normal day, I would travel on the 400Hwy south
But snow prevents normal
So I take Weston Road south
7:45am to 9:35am for 35 Km
3 minutes and 8.5 s per km
Many vehicles without lights on in the blizzard
Many more vehicles without snow removed
If snow is on your mirror, you cannot see behind you
If snow is on your washer nozzles, you cannot spray
If snow is on your headlights and taillights, they are severely dimmed
If snow is in your wheel wells, steering becomes a problem
If snow covers your air grille, you can overheat, yes you can!
If snow covers your windows, you cannot see around you
Lack of Vision is Impairment; make no mistake
A snow-covered vehicle is equivalent to being drunk
There is no difference in the lack of safety both represent
Lights On, Snow Off, it’s simple, not Rocket Science
Don’t join the Three Forces of Evil
