"First, no one should be darting in and out of small openings in any car." Of course they shouldn't, but they do it all the time-- folks drive those one way streets like they are a freeway, over the limit. I don't worry about being rear-ended when I have to take my foot off the gas to make a turn on to a side street, because I drive a large vehicle. My husband does though-- he drives a toyota corolla and regularly has speeding pick-up trucks following too close on King and Main.

"Second, if it is truly impossible, how do you manage to arrive at work collision free?" By not taking chances. Which means I miss the turns I need because I couldn't get over to the lane I needed to be in.

"Third, if someone isn't able to merge in traffic traveling at 60 km/h, what are they doing with a driver's license?" One needs a space to merge into if one is going to merge-- not a lot of spaces available during rush hour, what with the timed lights and 4 lanes of one-way traffic. Try finding a space in order to get over to the far right lane to turn right on to Dundurn after exiting the 403 at Main E certain times of the day, without taking chances (which I don't, which brings me back to point number 2)

But I suppose that makes me a bad driver in your book. I'm willing to live with that.
