traffic quiz


When driving in an active school zone, with school buses and kids in the area, you find yourself behind a cyclist. He is only going 35km/h in the marked 30km/h zone, and is riding in the middle of the lane (the other lane is for parking, and has cars and buses etc... along it). What do you do?

a) Realize that you are speeding, slow down to 30km/h, and continue as though nobody shat in your breakfast. Which is nice, because it's a beautiful spring morning.

b) Honk. Swerve into oncoming traffic on this busy but narrow road. Accelerate to pass the cyclist. As you pass, roll down your window to exchange pleasantries with the cyclist.

In Calgary, the correct answer is b. It's happened to me twice in just over 12 hours, and happens regularly.
