A video surfaced this past week of some particularly erratic Richmond drivers on Youtube.
Dash cam footage showed a startling three drivers sailing past red lights, right across the intersection. As a result, the comments section of the video had people making numerous assumptions as to why this phenomena happened at the same time. Specifically, would are the coincidences that three vehicles just happened to be doing the same type of reckless driving.
It turns out, very slim. As many Youtubers guessed, the drivers in the video were police officers.
The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia confirmed this in a press release.
