Sounds like the person who ran the "Red" light is not fessing up to their wrongdoings. Typical Sault driver

So happy queen st. is re-opened! It doesn't take me 15 minutes to back outta my driveway anymore! Lol I hope all the queen drivers make it their new years resolution to retake their driving test!
Tag33&1/3rd 12/16/2013 3:58:17 PM Report

Back outta my driveway on Wellington St. That is! :)

Re take there drivers test nice did u forget it is illegal to reverse out of your driveway hmmm was part of the drivers test.
vic-star 12/16/2013 4:48:42 PM Report

It is illegal to back onto a roadway...also much safer to back into your driveway and pull out. Albert and Dennis is a terrible intersection. Running reds, turning right onto albert in front of traffic and fender benders are pretty common there

Instead of crying about it for the last 6 months,why don't you "back in" and DRIVE OUT?????
macgyvr 12/16/2013 6:10:31 PM Report

I agree with vic-star

Tag33

it is a traffic violation to back out of a driveway into traffic. And common sense (unheard of in the soo) would tell you to back into your driveway and drive out of it so that you can see better, especially in the winter.
Boomer4771 12/16/2013 6:49:46 PM Report

Maybe they failed the backing up part of the test also.....LMAO.
Tag33&1/3rd 12/16/2013 7:00:31 PM Report

Lol backing out or driving forward out is the same thing! Either way due to the Queen st. traffic that was re-routed to Wellington -- it would take the same amount of time waiting for an opening from the TRAFFIC and the people that speed thru the lights while turning red at simpson and pine. Lol I admit I didn't know it's illegal to back out your own driveway? So everybody that lives on my street is breaking the law? So ya'll back into ur driveways and would be happy to wait for me to stop traffic on wellington and back into my driveway? Lol must be a queen streeter being rude with me eh?
H.E.T. 12/16/2013 7:05:49 PM Report

Not a queen streeter and yes I DO back into my driveway every time. Think about it 3/4 of your car is behind the drivers seat, so when the snowbanks get big you have to put 3/4 of your car out on the street before you can see past the snowbank. Not hard to figure out its safer to drive out than back out.
H.E.T. 12/16/2013 7:15:09 PM Report

Driving out IS different and would be faster because you would be able to see an opening and go without having to stop in the middle of the street to shift from R to D. just saying.
canadiens_8 12/16/2013 9:32:32 PM Report

Albert and Dennis St is a bad intersection? How so? Seems pretty easy to stop and look both ways before turning. If you are on Dennis and turning right on Albert, just wait for the green before turning. Done.
Tag33&1/3rd 12/17/2013 2:06:33 AM Report

K thanks -- gonna try it!

Backing out of a driveway is illegal?
Imagine enforcing that.

We should get a police hot line number and report anyone backing out of a drive way. That would keep everybody busy ,like forever.
double eagle 12/17/2013 5:47:08 PM Report

Please read Highway Traffic Act of Ontario sec139(1)
WHERE does it say it is illegal to back out of a driveway; your legal obligation is to yield to the traffic on the highway.
Tag33&1/3rd 12/18/2013 4:18:43 PM Report

Ya didn't think it was illegal!!! Dumb-Dumbs! Lol
