Being nice is a uniquely Canadian phenomenon. But the phenomenon is apparently out of control on the streets of Summerside, Canada.


As the Canadian Press reported, traffic accidents in the Summerside province has increased recently. The accidents have been caused by people being too nice, say the city's police force.

Summerside police department issued a tweet discouraging drivers from yielding. “Motorists, please don’t be the ‘nice person’ who waves a driver across 2 lanes of traffic,” it said.
