School zone speeder

Dear Sir dump truck,

I’d like to apologize for my miscalculation on distance perception vs. speed in a school zone.

It was not my intent to cause you upset nor was it my intent to be malicious in any way by pulling out of my road — certainly had I known you’d ride my bumper and lay on the horn for half a kilometre going 70kph, I might have waited. At most times it is nearly impossible to pull out onto Sooke Road past Saseenos Elementary School. You may have noticed I pulled off because you made it your purpose to visually conduct a manner of upset by flailing your arms as I passed afterwards. I would have to assume, although by your example I know otherwise (lesson learned); a truck with prolonged stopping capacity would be more cautious through a school zone and might be more cognizant particularly in the mornings – what if a child ran after a dog?

Again, I’d like to say that I was immediately sorry for the misjudgement, however, your reaction was entirely uncalled for and I’d like for you to take caution particularly through where you are driving.
