    Good post Scott. I can’t believe I purchased my own car this year in January. I did a lot of research to find a very safe vehicle that was fuel efficient. I landed on my Mazda because it has curtain airbags, great on gas, all shoulder belts and it was brand new. I take so much pride in my vehicle. I take it every 4 months for maintenance to make sure it’s running properly and will continue to do this no matter what!

      You are a positive example to everyone! Vehicles are a means of transportation. Even though we want to look good in them, we have to ensure they are safe for us to travel in. I think your choice in vehicles was a smart one!

    Way to go Scott! So informative and true! Thanks for sharing your true stories and lessons.

  3. 1975 Ford LTD 2 door, yellow, nicknamed the Banana Boat, about 3/4 the length of a Hamilton City Bus while I attended Mohawk College.
    A rough incident on hwy 12 north of Lindsay heading for Orillia, I spotted a slow moving vehicle with a horse trailer, so I made my intentions to pass safely, and he sped up, I slowed, he slowed, traffic was coming and I wasn’t having space to get behind, so I cranked my steering and 270 degrees into a 6 ft deep ditch
    other drivers spotted me and agreed I was not at fault and helped me out of the ditch. Total damage
    $10 for dirt in my tires. Man I miss that car.
    Sadly it went through engines like kids through ice cream and I had to give it up. No airbags, safest vehicle I’ve ever owned.
