In this survey there were an inordinate number of multiple votes with a comment that indicated anger and/or frustration.  We counted only one vote whether No or Yes. 

 Multiple voting .... hmmmm.  You can express your opinion easily in the comments without trying to influence the vote one way or another.  Most people just vote and don't comment.


Almost all of the traffic laws are rarely observed. Speeding, passing on right off the travelled portion of the road, pulling over for emergency vehicles, loud engines on motorcycles and trucks, distracted driving, etc. I would like to see stronger enforcement of traffic laws.  Speed limits are a joke!!!

Almost every day .. we have people talking on their cell phones, speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, always looking for a fight..its getting worse not better in this town of Saugeen Shores.

Always seems to be the tourists.

Have found most drivers were courtious

I fully understand why people have their own road rage. For example: The speed limit between Port Elgin and Southampton is 50 mph, not 50 kph. 

I have only encountered a lot of rude and inconsiderate drivers. This is especially on the main street of Southampton while trying to back out of a parking space and the on coming traffic will not let you out.

I'm very patient so that helps !

it was very upsetting for all on the road at the time to be threaten by a out of control person in a large truck.

just have to be ahead of me, passing at cross walk.  not stopping at stop signs. waving at me to go first at stop sign when the other driver clearly has the right of way etc. etc.

Not yet, however, there are lots of stupid drivers out there !

people just in too big of a hurry to get where they are going. 

The corner of Goderich & Market is going to get someone killed one day. The short merge lane needs to be removed and make a turning lane only on the right side going south thru town. Come one someone wake up

There is not even half the visitors to Saugeen Shores compared to other years.

we were stop checked by a driver and nearly lost control of our vehicle after he put us in the ditch

Yes - from my 'back-seat' driver who sits in the passenger seat! Anon....

Yes.  It seems to be the visitors to the area and those on their way to the nuclear plant that are in a hurry to get where they are going.  I drive the speed limit and the number of times another vehicle is driving on my bumper and giving me the "finger" and yelling obscenities as they pass me have been countless over the last several months.

Young woman on a bike swearing at a person in a car.  Who was at fault, I do not know.  The bike person had a foul mouth.
