Tongue firmly in cheek

I object to the noise created by all those amateur drivers on the Pat Bay Highway.

I object to the noise created by all those amateur drivers on the Pat Bay Highway.

Why can’t people just stay home and play their driver simulation video games?

I’m sure most of them are just driving around for pleasure and don’t have a legitimate need for being in their cars. Just last week, I counted over 300 cars in one hour at Beacon and Highway 17.

Many of these cars have the L or N placard on them and it’s well known that inexperienced drivers cause most of the accidents. There is no need for them to practice driving on our roads!

I even see them driving near my house and it terrifies me.

I also hear noisy military vehicles on the highway, another example of Harper’s militarist expansion plans.

Why can’t we just eliminate all these vehicles and reserve the highway for when I want to travel on vacation? That would eliminate most of the noise and reduce accidents.

We can then live in peace and quiet and only use the highway when I think it’s important.

Satire intended.
