    If the Telegram is posting an article, they should make sure the picture fits what they are talking about. This black pickup truck was not involved in the accident. Make sure you know your facts first before publishing!!!

    Well I guess they can't blame the moose for these. People just don't know how to adjust their driving habits to the weather and other conditions.

    What do you expect when people don't slow down. It's time to put cameras on the road and mailing people tickets.

    Please get your facts straight before announcing that this pickup was involved in the accident. The accident was with a Brinks truck, and 2 red cars. This pickup avoided the accident by driving into the median. It was NOT involved in the accident. You arrive late and the best picture you could get was this truck being towed out of the median, so you made up the story to fit the picture. Please get your facts straight!

    Idiot drivers. Too bad the RNC is only any good after an accident. How about you start giving out tickets for tailgating, no signals and cell phones??? They are THE most invisible traffic duty in Canada. But by all means, blame the fog.

    Newfoundlanders are the worst drivers in Atlantic Canada. No indicators, going too slow in left lane on highway, driving too fast for conditions, stopping in added lane, stopping for no reason, stopping at a yield when no traffic is coming...I could go on...
