Are British drivers better than Canadians? Discuss

indicator

And it’s time for our new Tuesday Night Fun Quiz! Fingers on the buzzers. Your starter for 10. No conferring. Canadian drivers … what does this light mean?

Boy racers. Sunday drivers. Road hogs. Speed freaks. Rubberneckers.

No — not names of famous 70s bands, but various ways we describe drivers. We all think we can drive. But who’s the best? Is one country better than the other? Got an opinion? Want to be in a documentary about it? Want $250 if you’re chosen?

Brits in Toronto have been asked by a production company to help find people to appear in a two-minute documentary video sponsored by a Canadian insurance company to chat about all the above.

“I am working as a content producer for a video series that deals with driving and I am looking for people that grew up in foreign countries and would be comfortable talking about the differences in driving behaviour between their homeland and Canada. Do you know anyone who could be interested?

“We will be filming in Ontario in March or April, depending on the interviewee’s location and availability. The filming takes about two hours and the feeĀ is $250.”

They are looking for five people from five different countries, so if you’re a Brit who wants to represent your fellow expats then e-mail Charlotte at nadeau DOT charlotte AT gmail DOT COM or give her a shout on the dog and bone at 514-774-9918.

You’ll be asked to provide some background info and the producers will choose the final candidate to appear so … good luck! And tell ’em Brits in Toronto sent you, cheers.
