Retaking your road test won't change anything. Most people can drive who have a license is just that THEY CHOOSE to be idiots and drive like morons. Put them in a situation where they have to pass a test and they most likely will. I think it needs to be the getting of the license itself that needs to be tougher because clearly the bad ones are slipping through.
Interesting points. I feel like you could revoke half the licences in the Lower Mainland. People are either too aggressive or too scared to move out there. Part of all the aggression, not to excuse it, but it's people chilling in the passing lane at 75km/hr, people driving side by side to block flow, people waiting 3 minutes to turn on to a road, etc. Throw in waiting at 18 red lights on a supposed main road, it gets frustrating. But the aggressive behavior is dangerous and inexcusable.

It truly blows my mind that people are thinking this way. Like where are your BRAINS!?!?!?!?!?!

We just saved so many lives! Let's celebrate by completely undoing all of that progress.

Agree 100% PK. I do have to admit that there is a nasty part of me that can't help but smirk when you find out that the leader of the "Open N Carolina" group gets diagnosed with covid-19. I know I'm heading to heck in a handbasket for that but I guess I'll deal with it then

But do people really think this? I don't know anyone who does.

To switch gears a bit, there is one thing that is bugging me this week...

A lot more testing being done than in the beginning of the pandemic they’re likely were many hundreds a day in March infected
the real number to look at is hospitalizations which are down significantly to 10 in all of B.C.! and the same with deaths (hardly any ever), will have to keep an eye on this for sure but it doesn’t seem very serious anymore.

Some restrictions and stop the fear mongering. IMO
