Yet another reckless driver was caught on tape doing something ridiculous. This time, the Canadian driver was impaired and doing donuts at a busy Vancouver intersection. Eventually, the driver was arrested by police but not before the entire thing was caught on video. It has since been shared online and viewed thousands of times.
According to a Facebook post, a Vancouver couple managed to catch a video of a driver recklessly doing donuts in the middle of a busy intersection on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at around 10 PM.
The incident took place at Main and Hastings Street, which is one of the busiest intersections in the downtown area, for both drivers and pedestrians.
The couple who took the video were at their home when they heard a great deal of ruckus from the street below. When they looked outside their window, they saw the driver being a danger to themselves and others.
In the video, you can see the car doing a number of donuts in the middle of the intersection. The driver literally stopped traffic and you can see several other vehicles waiting for the driver to be finished.
Tons of people are on the street watching and cheering. You can even see skid marks the car is leaving behind as they do donuts.
But it doesn't stop there! The driver eventually moves on to the next intersection, where they begin to do yet another set of donuts. At the second intersection, you can see the driver get shockingly close to the sidewalk, where people are walking.
After the driver finished their second round, they head back down to the original intersection, swerving erratically the entire way. The driver almost swerves directly into oncoming traffic.
In the video, you can hear the couple debate on whether or not call the police. Turns out, the police were called and the driver was arrested.
According to a Vancouver police report, the driver was impaired. The 37-year-old Surrey man, Harpreet Gill, was charged with dangerous driving.
Police are expected to issued additional charges related to impaired driving later on. Gill currently remains in police custody for his actions.
