Does “Yours to discover” mean “yours to discover that this street is unexpectedly your turn so come to a complete halt in the left lane and maybe or maybe not wait for traffic to clear in the right lane before turning right”? Or possibly it means “yours to discover that a traffic signal means there is an intersection and come to a complete halt on a green light while contemplating what to do about it”? And does “Je me souviens” mean “don’t look at me, I don’t know how to drive either”?
I have never driven in a town with so many bad drivers as Ottawa. Never. Yes, the streets are poorly designed and poorly signed, and traffic lights operate at apparently random intervals as if controlled from an underground bunker by some poor soul with Parkinson’s, but still… I’ve been here 12 days, and I know my way around this town better than 50% of these idiots.
I thought that the opportunity to pull off stupid traffic moves would be understood and forgiven while I still have Colorado plates on my car, but nobody even notices my stunts with all the real dumbshits out there. Sheesh.
And, yes, I am an excellent driver.
