A Richmond driver has posted a video on YouTube showing a remarkable four vehicles blowing red lights within the span of 10 minutes in the east Cambie neighbourhood Jan. 31 at 9:30 a.m.
YouTuber am0s.x shows dash-cam footage, beginning at Bridgeport and Simpson roads, or a dark grey sedan turning into the oncoming lane and then casually passing through the intersection against the red light.
Then, 10 minutes later, while driving southbound on Shell Road, he stops at Cambie Road against a red light only to have a silver Toyota Highlander pass his vehicle on the left side and swerve into oncoming traffic turning left northbound on to Shell, from Cambie. The Toyota dips through the turning traffic and proceeds southbound.
A more dangerous manoeuver takes place when a grey Honda Accord and black Honda Pilot follow the Toyota seconds later.
Were the vehicles’ drivers together and in a coordinated hurry to get somewhere or evade someone? Or were the last two drivers simply, obliviously following the lead of the Toyota?
Questions have been posed to the Richmond RCMP, including what recourse police may take granted the licence plates have been published online.
