This might be the most misunderstood traffic law in Alberta

Who has the right-of-way at an uncontrolled T intersection?

This isn’t a trick question. This is a basic concept that we all had to learn to get a driver’s licence in Alberta. Still, so many of us either forget or had no idea in the first place. Who has the right-of-way? Is it car A or car B?

The Full Episode Notes...

Strong Opinions Loosely Held.

This is the National Talky League - A weekly conversation about what's going on with a distinctly Albertan perspective. Topics range from political and social issues to movies and pop culture.

Hosted by Roger Kingkade and Dave Ware, labels don't do much to describe these two. Sometimes conservative, sometimes liberal, sometimes progressive, never holding anything as sacred and always willing to call bullshit when they see it.
