Angry driver disrupts TTC service

    I just submitted this story to BlogTO, but i'm not sure if it will get published so i'm posting it here:


    On the night of Friday, July 16, I was on the streetcar headed southbound on Bathurst. The car was moving awfully slow for the time of day, and approaching College street it was announced there is a delay with some more streetcars up ahead and this one would be diverting its route. I got off and started heading south on foot, where I saw about three more streetcars lined up with no passengers inside, and the drivers on the sidewalk.

    You are probably thinking that one of the cars' cables came off the track, backing up all of the others. Or maybe you are thinking that the TTC isn't taking enough care of its vehicles, or how about the benefits of Light Rail Transit overall? As I got to the front of this line, I saw of all things, a Porsche sitting parked on the track.

    It looked like it broke down, but then again if it was indeed broken, then why wasn't it pushed to the side of the road? I could hear a TTC driver on the side speaking passionately to a group of passerbys about what was going on. It turns out that the driver of the Porsche claims that a TTC driver poured water on his car, in retaliation for begin cut off. So the driver of the automobile decided to park it on the tracks.

    To the driver of this car, I'm not really sure what happened there, but there are better ways to deal with a conflict than to disrupt the evening commute for hundreds of paying TTC customers. Everyone has a complaint about the TTC these days, but my complaint that night was about selfish and thoughtless people.

    yeah seriously, this story would've been much better had the TTC driver just decided to piledrive-ram the thing out of the way.
    now that would have been Hilarious. (and youtube-worthy)

    i know sorry the details are fuzzy. from what i could tell he allegedly tossed water out the window onto the porsche (probably out of a bottle).

    my photo isn't there any more either.

    Spot on. He's clearly above mingling with the common folk who use public transport. People should have got off the streetcar and keyed the shit out of his car.

    Unless the Porsche was traveling the opposite direction of the streetcar, how did the streetcar driver pour water on it?

    ... or did he open the doors and toss it out that way?

    Oh right he can afford a nice car so he has a small penis. If he was a teacher and drove a Camry he would be hung like a black porn star.

    in my experience biking around TO, Porsche drivers seem to park anywhere they want: in front of fire hydrants, in bike lanes, in handicap parking, on sidewalks... one of the key requirements in Porsche ownership is a lack of parking skill IMO

    ^^^ idiots in their low rent BMW 3's and low end mercedes drivers are FAR FAR FAR worse than porsche drivers.

    The people I have met that owned Porsche's seemed to have them because of the performance features that a 911 offers, more of a gearhead with a large amount of change thing, the people in the entry level german cars you mentioned (I agree BTW) its more of a "look at my Beamer" even though a Cherokee is more expensive.

    Nothing worse than seeing a rotted out old three series on shitty rims and the driver thinking he has the ultimate chic magnet.

    "Have you seen my car....the Beamer......?"

    you prolly sided with the so called protesters

    'get in the way and im gonna destroy your shit"

    home boy with the porsche is obviously a douche hat, but i love that your first response is to destroy his shit, then would prolly get all uppity if you got arrested for doing it

    golf clap

    shit not even that... honestly i could have leased a 3 series bmw for the price i pay financing on my mazda 3 2.5....

    a lot of people at my job gave me shit when i bought my mazda 3. Everyone tells me i could ahve bought a used mercedes or bmw for the price i paid.

    the difference i when my mazda 3 breaks down, I CAN AFFORD TO REPAIR IT,...... unlike the mercedes my boss owns that was in the shop for 3 weeks because of a blown speed sensor on his transmission... which lead to another fucking electrical demon.... and another. His entire interior of the car was ripped out and put back together, over 3 blown electronic 'sensors' for shit that dont even exist on my car.


    yea, like im going to buy a high end car when i literally live pay cheque to paycheque just to please some douche fucks at work or anyone else.

    at least i know for a fact my car aint breaking down and ill get 10+ years out of it. Just like my mazda protege that i owned for 10 years and the only work i ever did on it was replace the water pump/timing belt, alternator and EGR valve. Yea.. like im going to drive a BMW or merc.

    people get really stupid with status symbols and vehicles. Thankfully, i never ever give a shit about it.

    Every Porsche owner on my parents street is just a Bay street douche who never takes it over the speed limit. Same with the people who would store them at my buddy's exotic car shop. Now the guy with the Maserati on the other hand...
