  1. Donโ€™t want to offend anybody or sound racist, but have you ever seen how they drive in India and Pakistan? Thunder Bay resembles the 407 in Toronto but thereโ€™s less intersections there! Go to LU campus and watch as the cars race around like theyโ€™re on a Tyco car track and some of the vehicles even glow. Just amazes me how total disregard for laws and regulations are thrown out the window. You want to surf? Beautiful lake there and beautiful ski hills…go surf there. Just sayinโ€™

    1. FWborn, Pardom me but what has India and Pakistan have to do with this. Today I counted 6 vehicles running red lights and I mean RED lights and probably not East Asian drivers.
      We really need better traffic enforcement including charging drivers of trucks with tires sticking out past the fenders and vehicles having only one headlight and of course the speeders and red light runners etc. It seems as though people just do whatever they want in this town. I am sure the TBPS is overwhelmed with other issues so traffic gets put on the back burner. Maybe what we need is what they have in other countries and that is a second level of police that do nothing but traffic, don’t carry guns and work at a lower pay scale. One other issue is that traffic fine money should stay in Thunder Bay and not go to Toronto. That might be incentive enough alone to increase traffic enforcement.
