Bring back the B.C. drivers’ test

Reader examines bringing back drivers' test to make Malahat safer

Many years ago, my husband and his family travelled the Malahat in a horse and buggy — that was a challenge.

Billions have been spent to upgrade this very dangerous stretch of road. No matter how many more billions are spent, unless drivers slow down, this carnage will never stop.

There is no deterrent to make them slow down. Ask the driver who has to do this route every day. The government cannot make drivers behave better but they can implement big fines, which perhaps might get them thinking.

B.C. drivers do as they please. Bring back the drivers’ test.
