Might just solve one of my biggest pet peeves. One that I encounter on a daily basis – traffic violators in the school zone. Every driver in Ontario who must have read the Drivers Handbook must know signs as 20 of 40 in the exam is devoted to just signs.
No Stopping. Between the time shown.
On schooldays. Where the arrows point.

The Ontario Highway Traffic Act defines “stopping” as halting of a vehicle, even momentarily, whether occupied or not, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the directions of a police officer. In other words, no stopping nor parking for whatever reason where it says so. Still I see a caterpillar of cars every day impeding traffic flow in school and it bugs me. In our neighbourhood, residents park their vehicles in the Visitor Parking to free up their garage and driveway (I don’t get it). My visitors then have to park way down the street because the Visitor Parking is full. And then some squeeze 3 cars on 2-car driveways. Eh-hem eh-hem. And those who are not expecting yet park on the Expectant Mothers spot (in our office!). Or alone but parks on the spot for drivers with small children. Still those who park close (within 3 metres) to the fire hydrant. Yes, I’m a nerd like that! And law-abiding.

Yesterday at the grocery I saw a lady switching eggs between 2 different trays of Large & Extra Large. *flabberghasted* What the ! And you know those who abuse the lenient return policies in Canada. Those who return used items. Think worn shoes, jackets and purses. Dis.gus.ting! Ugh.
