The new year is upon us and global warming is in the air. On the down side traffic in our city is definitely an increasing problem but there is something each one of us can do to improve this situation. Starting today let’s each resolve to be more courteous either as drivers or pedestrians.
For those on foot be alert for opportunities to be of help to those who are older or perhaps have difficulty with walking.
For drivers, be willing to give up your “right of way” when another driver is less than tolerant. Forget trying to beat that traffic light. Stop well away from the cross walk and wave that pedestrian across with a smile. Offer a ride to that elderly person with an arm load of parcels. Let’s begin today to make Chilliwack the “courteous capital” of the nation. Have a safe, happy and courteous year.
