You can drive fast and be safe, if you can handle your car well unlike a lot of people. The problems arise when nervous drivers tie up traffic, older drivers drive too slow, inconsiderate drivers do not signal, unattentive drivers dont look where they are going, and inexperienced drivers are out in road and weather conditions beyond their and their car's ability. Then in Newfoundland we have a unique condition: people used to driving in one road towns with no lights and little traffic coming to St. John's only to get mezmorized in traffic risking their lives and the lives of others. I compare people who drive for a living (and not just too and from a living) to old sailors who can read the waves and survive.

I agree with you Jeff, the signage in this City is awful also the fact that there are no lines on the roads now and won't be until June or July certainly doesn't help. Council is too busy approving new developments to worry about something like signage. On Kenmount Road, you can't even find a sign close to telling you where Brad Gushue highway east turn off is. I do have on complaint, when people are turning left, the arrow flashes at least five times before the first driver moves, this in turn enrages people behind him and so four or five more cars go through the red light. People need to pay attenton.

Bad driving aside, poor / misleading signage coupled with bad lighting on the city highways don't help the situation. Can we get some mainlanders out here to show us how it's done?
