There aren’t that many drivers in the world who can honestly say they’ve never splashed pedestrians accidentally. Whether there’s not enough room to avoid the puddle or the driver sees it too late, it happens. People can understand that.
But when a driver is on a strange mission to splash all the pedestrians that happen to be in their path, chances are we’re dealing with a disturbed individual.
It happened a few days ago in Canada on Ottawa’s King Edward Avenue, where a van driver was filmed going out of his way to splash pedestrians. The dashcam footage reveals a white Ford Transit van belonging to the Black & McDonald company purposefully driving through puddles and splashing pedestrians.
The video of the incident, posted by YouTube user Saif Khan on July 27, went viral and gathered more than 2.3 million views as of August 2. Inevitably, Black & McDonald learned of their driver’s mean and insensitive behavior and announced the decision to fire the individual via a Facebook post.
The company did not disclose the identity of the person who was behind the wheel of the Ford Transit. According to a CBC report, the police confirmed that Black & McDonald terminated the driver and said the case was closed, with no criminal charges to be laid. Justice served?
