Red lights

I am not sure exactly why so many adults in Vernon are either colour blind or running late all the time.

It’s a beautiful September morning and I am walking to work, enjoying the cooler temperature.

It only takes me 15 minutes to get there, and in that time one car went through a red light on 27th, two blocks later a truck ran the light at  39th Avenue and 27th Street and the third was a fully -loaded semi which went through the red light at 32nd Street  and 30th Avenue.

Just before the semi, a truck  turned left onto 32nd Street off 30th Avenue just as I was about to cross. I am guessing he figured his truck was a bus! No wonder pedestrians are getting mowed over. Slow down people, respect others and respect the law. No left turn means don’t turn there, and a  red light doesn’t mean go like hell, it means stop.
