Halloween is meant to be a fun celebration, but it can also be risky if parents, children and drivers don't take precautions. Compared to an average day, crashes spike by 25 per cent on Halloween with 330 people injured in 920 crashes across B.C.
The sun is shining, the traffic is light and I'm actually enjoying my drive on the Inland Island Highway (technically speaking, it's a freeway) headed to Qualicum Beach. The only vehicle nearby is a car that is slowly overtaking me on the left. Not a problem as I'm travelling slightly under the 120 km/h speed limit.
Why, oh why, when there are literally kilometers of unused pavement in sight, does the driver of this vehicle have to make a lane change to the right putting their vehicle within about 3 vehicle lengths of my front bumper?
1) File 17-9141. October 5, an employee of the Home Building Centre in French Creek called to report that someone over the previous evening had spray painted a business vehicle.
Is summer over already? It seems that the lawn is just coming out of dormancy in my yard but night time temperatures have dipped below 7 degrees. That and the fact that it is October the first means that it's time to get winter tires installed. Winter tire and chain up routes are now in effect.
1) File 17-8731 September 23. A few vehicles that had been left open overnight were entered on Morison Avenue in Parksville. Loose change, binoculars and other items left in plain view were stolen.
