snow - a rant

Kitchener Waterloo had a nice dump of light, fresh snow last night - at least 10cm on my van.
The roads weren't plowed when I took Janice to work for 7am.
But that wasn't the problem.
It was drivers who don't clean their vehicles off.
They get in, turn the wipers on and drive away.
Headlights are covered with snow
Tail/breaklights are covered with snow
Rear windows are covered with snow
Front windshield is only partially uncovered
Snow drifts off the roof onto the vehicle behind them

Clean your vehicles off!!

Try living on the prairies where the roads are NEVER plowed.

Just sanded.

No salt.

Then it all builds up and gets packed down and then the chinook comes and melts it all into a big brown soup which then freezes and people still drive like it is summer and slide all over the place and run red lights at crosswalks and nearly kill you when you are walking to work because you cannot afford a car because your [stupid] student loan payments are high enough to support the economies of serveral impoverished African nations.

When all that happens, then you've got a soap box to stand on.

I'm not complaining about the roads - it's stupidity - dumbness - laziness - selishness of some drivers who don't have a clue, or don't give a care about others
