Are you REALLY SAFE Driving in Peterborough?

Do you agree with the folowing?

All City Vehicles should have an IID, "Ignition Interlock Device". Also, do the police spot check these vehicles? This includes dump trucks, back hoes and all other large or construction equipment driven on City Streets owned by, leased by or contracted to the City of Peterborough. It's time we get serious about the safety of the citizens of this 'retirement community'. Indeed, now that bicycle lanes are becoming the norm it is even more imperative to protect citizens from all causes.

A simple rule to govern any vehicle that qualifies for IID. Such vehicles, driven on City Streets, must be started by the driver before engaging it into gear. Failure to adhere to that rule could result in either a reprimand, suspension or termination for both the driver and the person who started the vehicle for them.

Take the time to STOP, Safety Takes Overall Priority, and think about what might happen.

A year contains 525,960 minutes. Even if a driver is stopped twice a year, at 15 minutes per check, that is a small price to pay to avoid a major lawsuit should a situation occur. Some years ago as I was walking downtown I saw a bus broadside a car stopped in the intersection and I remember thinking, "The driver should have seen that and stopped, I saw it coming and got well out of the way, I saw or heard no indication of brakes."

If you're aware of an abuser driving these kinds of vehicles you should anonymously report your suspicions to the employer or even Crime Stoppers Canada Tip Line. Nothing to hide, nothing to fear. Only abusers would object to this.

Quick to date summary.

We want to thank those who have come forward with similar issues. We know now that it's not personal, it's simply bullying. The documents are being created and we will, with luck, go to the final stage by year end or early next year. There is no room in a free society for gangs who bully due to either peer pressure or mental illness.

Second Last Chapter of this SAGA! HPD

"Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is a mental health condition marked by unstable emotions, a distorted self-image and an overwhelming desire to be noticed. People with HPD often behave dramatically or inappropriately to get attention."

Signs may include but are not limited to:
- blocking roads from traffic
- strutting down the centre of the street rather than the side where kids and most adults walk safely, for all.
- putting a backyard deck out front to be noticed
- gossiping and creating issues for all who dare not speak to them
- always on the street, to be seen and loud, to be heard
- forcing others into the street by invading their private space as they converse
- they enjoy situations in which they can be the centre of attention
- they feel uncomfortable when people are not paying attention to them
- It is common for people with this disorder to wear flamboyant clothing

There are many symptoms, the links below are good articles.

There's one chapter left to this 15 year old saga. The City can have me as a witness to help them recoup costs - or not. There needs to be at least one termination at 'Club P' as I understand it is referred to.

The last refuge of cowards is to bully the defenseless, usually the abuse of seniors and children!

Three simple little rules for fixing these types of issues.
1. Follow the curb line when plowing - per job description!
2. Do not impede the visibility of vehicles entering or leaving the main traffic flow - per bylaws.
3. Do not endanger those who use the road plus those who have to walk down it in Winter as there are no sidewalks - Basic Human Common Sense.
