The streets can be dangerous. Here’s proof from Ottawa, thanks to rider Erik Hanna, who took this video of a woman who appears to be driving distractedly thanks to her cellphone.
The clip is pretty self-explanatory: The woman looks to be engrossed in her phone, and not paying much attention to the roadway. She comes to a halt well back of the stop line, and when Hanna tries to get her attention, simply locks her door and ignores him. Then, as they leave the light, her vehicle appears to cut him off.
Hanna says he’s given a copy of the video to police, along with her plate number, and from what we hear, they’re following up on the lead (and of course, warning anyone who will listen about what a bad idea it is to follow drivers who do this sort of thing).
