CWritten by Dez Miklós

Anyone who reads the Hamilton area newspapers and follows driving-related topics has probably read, at some point in time, an opinion piece signed by Dez (Desmond) Miklós.

That is because Dez has always kept a close eye on and responded to any article that deals with driving habits, licensing, traffic, automobiles and road safety. Plus he has also thrown in his two cents on local politics and environmental issues.

Over the years Dez Miklós has sent in hundreds of letters to the editors of The Hamilton Spectator, Toronto Star, CBC. He has also been interviewed and profiled in a couple of articles and on TV.
