The dashcam of a Global BC cameraman captured some questionable driving choices in Metro Vancouver on Thursday following another heavy round of snow that blanketed the region. – Dec 31, 2021

The aftermath of Thursday’s heavy snowfall is still evident on the roads Friday, leaving conditions very icy and slick.

City crews in Vancouver had a challenging time keeping up with snow-clearing and commuters faced delays with vehicles and buses stuck in the snow.

However, some drivers probably should have avoided being on the roads in the winter conditions.

A Global BC cameraman captured a driver slipping and sliding through the streets of downtown Vancouver on summer tires.

The car could be seen swerving around a pedestrian who was walking in the street.

The driver then skids dangerously wide around a couple of corners and eventually gets stuck trying to go up a slight hill and waves the Global cameraman around him.

In addition, the cameraman also caught someone riding a motorized wheelchair down the street by B.C. Place.
