In your January 2000 issue, you have an article about Barry Enman, the Ontario Driver of the Year. Does anyone do their homework or math? In 27 years and 6.4 million miles, this means from the day he got his license he drove 237,037 miles a year, 4,558.4 miles per week, which is impossible. You don’t get much more than 3,000 miles legally.

And how often does Barry go to church? Every company states that if damage or accident occurs, an accident report must be filled out for insurance policy, and this could possibly forfeit the driver’s safety bonus. It’s very hard to believe that in 27 years he has never filled out a report because of a cut tire, bent rim, trailer door damage, hit mirror, or scratched fender. It makes coast-to-coast drivers chuckle.
