But Arthur that costs money and we all know that the NDP only gives money to millionaires. My advice is to buy a used tank,I am sure that Mr. Mackay can still get you one, reasonably priced then you can be sure of getting where you are going in one piece-good luck.

I have tried for years with the local policing services to join me in trying to get a safe driving program going to no avail. I contacted the Insurance Bureau of Canada at their regional office in Halifax but they said it was the provinces responsibility. What I would like to see is bulletin boards through the province, in malls post offices and ads in the news papers and on the radio and TV with reminders of the rules of the roads and safe driving tips. It is amazing how many people do not know the rules of the roads and how slack enforcement is in Nova Scotia for such things as daytime running lights which have been mandatory on all vehicles in Canada since 1991. People rely open these being in operation when pulling out into intersections or in bad weather conditions. If they are not working headlights are supposed to be turned on when a vehicle is in motion. Cell phone use from what I see with hand held devices is up since they enacted the law governing them. I wonder if the provincial government has ever done a survey of how many headsets have been sold in the province sine that legislation took effect. I have traveled from New Glasgow to Halifax on more than one occasion and have gone the entire distance without seeing a patrol car on the highway. people drive for mile after mile in the left lane on the divided lane, the provincial government saw fit to remove all the keep right except to pass signs. I could go on for hours about bad driving habits but this is a start. time for the provincial government to spend some ad money on safe driving tips and not puffing themselves up.
