Most kids growing up in Canada have ridden on the back of someone’s bicycle before. Sometimes you’d have to get somewhere quick, you wouldn’t have enough bikes and some unlucky girl or boy would be stuck riding on “pegs.” A Toronto driver recently took that same practice a step further by having someone ride on the back bumper of a car while they flew down a GTA roadway.

Yup, you read that right, someone went pegs on the back of the vehicle that could’ve easily been going anywhere from 70 to 80 km an hour.

The Halton Regional Police is searching for a Toronto-area driver after their vehicle was seen carrying an extra passenger on its back bumper. “On occasion, you've asked us what would warrant a dangerous driving charge. Pretty sure this would make the grade. Recognize this vehicle, or saw it on Upper Middle Rd. on Monday, Oct. 14? Give us a ring. We'd like to chat with the driver,” a statement on their Twitter read.

In the video, which was recorded via dashcam, a car can be seen speeding into the frame with a grey shape attached to its back bumper.

At first, it is hard to tell exactly what the form is until the car recording the shenanigans gets closer, and a pair of legs in grey sweatpants become noticeable. At the end of the clip, both drivers come to a stop, and the full shape of the daredevil passenger can be seen clinging onto the back bumper of the vehicle.

It's a shocking video, but perhaps not that surprising since dashcams are always picking up crazy things in Ontario. Back in September, a vehicle’s dashcam captured a video of a turkey’s road rage. In the footage, a giant turkey approaches a motorcyclist while he was waiting at a traffic stop.

At first, things seem pretty relaxed between the two, but the bird soon begins to kick him. The motorcyclist then attempts to push the turkey away from his vehicle to avail.
