Christy MANGLED her on-air duel with a DJ from JetFM.
MANGLED her Open and Transparent Flirtations with BC Senators.

Created "Project Ice Age", at a cost of $3.6 Billion for the 37 Kilometer Port Mann Bridge Improvement. Doubly MANGLED: No planning to prevent Ice-bombs and Ice-roads. No way to stop motor vehicles either.
A MANGLED Response team consisting of the highways maintenance company, the RCMP, other First Responders, Tow truckers, and NEWS people, all standing around, looking at Web Cameras AND hearing in real time the chaos that is happening on the Port Mann Bridge.
Apparently the PBM (2012) Safety First protocol is:
Watch, Wait, Record, Tow. Insure MANGLED mess is maximized to the hilt.
Answer: There are three Instances in Metro Vancouver, that for one reason or another, developed ways to take preventive actions to forewarn motorists, in each lane.
|Lions Gate Bridge lane lights|
|Deas Island Tunnel lane lights|
The Lions Gate Bridge and the Deas Island Tunnel haven't always had signal lights controlling each lane, but with several severe crashes, some causing deaths, changes were made. The Deas Island Tunnel has a bonus safety package, changing lanes is PROHIBITED!!!!!!
The Cassiar Tunnel (1992), a more modern transportation structure than the other two above, came WITH signal lights for each lane so that drivers would know to SLOW down, or STOP if the lane isn't moving at all.

J MacDuff (Weatherguy) has left a source for Motorists:
Back to the Original Mangled of 1912:
Labour-Saving Devices of a mechanical nature.
Improved devices of equipment are now so numerous that, unfortunately, only a few can be mentioned. some of those which assist in --- Efficient Cleaners of our House --- shall be first passed in review, though only too briefly. Prominence must be given to the worth of long-handed dust-pans, scrubbers, self-wringing mops, carpet-sweepers, and small vacuum cleaners. Those all share two advantages:-
a) they save the labour of stooping and kneeling
b) They effectively remove dirt when used appropriately and with INTELLIGENCE.
The first comment from my readers will be: "Why should I spare myself the act of stooping; my mother worked for hours on her hands and knees, she never grumbled, why then should I?"
Our Grandparents (Great Grandparents) were satisfied to travel by stage-coach, is that a reason why we should not perform our journeys by train or automobile? To waste energy is as ignorant and foolish as to waste time, when the means are at hand to economize our powers, which then are available for some other purpose. Think for a moment.
What Stooping and Kneeling Involve
We often talk about weight of our bodies as a whole. Thus we are either pleased to maintain the same weight, or to lose some pounds if too stout, or to gain so many pounds after an exhausting illness. Very few people, however, realize that, when the upper part of the body is bent forward, as in stooping down to use an ordinary dust-pan and brush, half the weight of the whole body has to be raised by the body itself when resuming an upright position.
A Mangle saves much ironing while the good appearance of sheets, cloths, and towels when well mangled maintains a high standard in domestic details.Certain articles must, however, still be ironed and an Excellent and Cheap Device for use with the Iron which reduces much of the work involved ordinarily in their nice and careful keeping are these "slip-ons" made of nickel, of which the surface is always bright and smooth. The heated iron is held in position by the springs, which are quickly fastened into their respective catches. Once used, the worth of these "slip-ons" is fully realized, and their cost is very small.
The Alcohol Iron!!!!! is also to be strongly recommended, especially for summer use. Attached to this iron is a tiny tank, from which gasoline or wood alcohol passes into tubes within the frame of the iron. Once the gasoline is set alight this iron remains hot, without further attention, for two or three hours. It can be used equally well in any room, or out on the cool, shady verandah in hot weather. Here is a wedding or birthday present, indeed, worth the giving and receiving.
