    The police should give everybody they stop, a copy of the rules of the road. From what I have seen,they don't know what signal lights are for & how far to stay behind another vehicle,{not up the tail pipe}.They don't know how or when to pass,. STOP means STOP. {DRIVE TO CONDITION'S}

    Do you notice how people turn their head and ignore drivers when they cross the road? Is it worth risking being in hospital for christmas or worse? Even if you are crossing a cross walk. Wake up and watch for drivers who could care less about you! Also too many cars and taxis are parking in the fire lanes at the malls obstructing the view of drivers and pedestrians.

    It might be helpful if the City of Corner Brook actually plowed and salted their streets instead of throwing out a tiny bit of sand and relying upon traffic flow to melt the snow and ice. It's always amazing how the roads outside of Corner Brook can be reduced to just a bit worse than wet while Corner Brook's roads are always completely snow-covered with nary a plow in sight.

    I bet they should have been reported as collisions not accidents. It's easy to ski in a car when you are going too fast for conditions.

    sorry to tell you abby but I'm from St.John's and drivers in Corner Brook are much worst than in Town. Because it is a bigger center with more vehicles it seems like snow covered windows happen there more so than here, not true. And 10 accidents in a day...got to be some kind of record! Go Corner Brook!!!

    I agree Abby. Some people are in such a rush they can't take the extra few minutes to make sure they can see out their own windows
