By RiC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A vehicle is an integral part of the majority the businesses in Lethbridge, but misuse of. these vehicles is costing the businessmen dollars in lost sales through the way the company cars are being driven. What has amounted to a growing frustration for me over the past few months turned in to a raging inferno the other day when a well-known business- man, driving his brightly-painted panel truck, swept through a crosswalk on Scenic Drive, forcing an old woman with cane in hand to literally stumble back to the safety of the curb. The businessman today realizes a tax saving in the amount of the capital purchase of the truck, and a sliding scale of savings for depreciation over the years. As an added bonus, lie can paint his company name all over the vehicle as a method of advertising free his company or product. This is where he may lose in the long run. No pedestrian likes to pick himself up from the cross- walk looking at a fast disappearing truck with a busi- ness name scrawled on the back. Chances are he will stop doing.business with that store. But what should really happen is for a seven foot lumberjack to get ruffled up by a business truck and then have him make kindling out of the driver. If a businessman can't control the drivers he hires, then the drivers should join the ranks of un- employed. Any businessman who blatantly refuses to rectify a dangerous driver situation, mainly because >f the safety factor and also because the business actor, should be prosecuted. It is bad enough when the average citizen abuses lis driving privileges by being discourteous to pedes- ;rians, but when so-called professional drivers who make their livings behind a wheel do it something must be done. The next time something like this happens a phone call to the manager of the store or company in- volved indicating curtailed business will suffice. If enough people do this, the stores will be out of busi- ness or else the careless drivers will be buying goods with unemployment insurance cheques.
