Leave it up to GTA drivers to find the most imaginative ways to get home after an accident.
Brampton police are investigating an incident where a driver was caught reversing down a busy road. A tweet that showed the stunt in action expertly captioned it as “Meanwhile in Brampton…”

Shinda Singh, the witness then posted a follow-up from another angle, showing the driver even attempted a left hand turn, and rather well we might add.

Another driver who caught the incident said she was in another car who talked to the driver. He said he was reversing because of a blown transmission, and did not want to call a tow truck.
This was crazy!!! I was in the Honda in the video who was talking to the driver…his transmission was gone. Bad choice…

Peel police caught wind of the video, replying to the tweet and saying they would be looking into the situation as it “poses safety risk”.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, it is being investigated. #PRP advises to call 911 in future as this poses safety risk

Peel police media relations officer Baljit Saini told Global News “Obviously this is a very dangerous incident and we urge the public to contact police if they witness that behaviour.”
