PEI drivers are causing accidents with their politeness

Drivers in PEI are inadvertently causing accidents by being too nice on the road, Vice reports that, thanks to a rash of accidents, police are now asking drivers to be less conscientious when yielding the right of way to oncoming traffic. In June, Summerside Police posted about it on Twitter, writing: “Motorists, please don’t be the ‘nice person’ who waves a driver across 2 lanes of traffic. Although you may have good intentions, this leads to collisions!” The accidents are mostly taking place at busy intersections or parking lots, when drivers in Canada’s smallest providence unwittingly wave their fellow motorists into oncoming traffic.
