Low Sun

Living in Alberta with gin clear air, low sun, especially during commuter hours, aligned with the roadway can be a real hazard

One driver died driving into a front end loader on the other side of the river here.

The loader operator was acquitted of dangerous driving. https://globalnews.ca/news/4358169/l...erous-driving/

I have been know to crawl along residential roads when I can't see into the tree shadows - better risking a rear ender than hitting a child.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Fire or Stove?

Excellent for cleaning the glass on a log burner.

Careful ST. Some on here might take advantage and opine that the first half of the word is appropriate. Not me IHTA!

It seems to be the passenger who has been banned, both for two speeding offences and also for failing to reveal the identity of the person driving the car. The offences seem to be unrelated to the accident involving HRH, but I might suggest that her actions in seeking media attention and being so critical may be related to her character, as revealed by the charge of failing to identify the driver.

To be fair, she denied intentionally failing to identify the driver.

The requests for her to do so were sent to a previous address as she hadn't advised the DVLA that she had moved.

I'm not sure what character traits, if any, that indicates - forgetfulness, perhaps ?

Lack of awareness of the law?
Priorities, lots of people to be informed on moving?
