CAUGHT ON VIDEO: OPP Pulls Over Brampton Driving Instructor Making Illegal U-Turn On Highway
During the Highway 410 closure yesterday, an OPP officer caught many drivers making illegal U-turn right in front of his cruiser.
OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt was broadcasting the incident when he saw many vehicles crossing over the grass onto the Highway 410 northbound. Sgt. Schmidt issues a verbal warning to the cars at the front of the line when he saw a driving school instructor attempting to make the illegal U-turn.
Sgt. Schmidt approached the vehicle from Brampton’s New Method Driving School to have “a little chat.”
The new driver explains that the instructor told the driver to pull over and so that the instructor can make an illegal U-turn. The instructor then states that she told the driver to make the illegal action as they were late for an appointment.
“Don’t take the New Method Driving School’s advice of going through a shoulder and breaking the law just because you’re at a closure and you’re late for an appointment, you kinda have to have some sense,” says Sgt. Schmidt.
