VIDEO: Cops track down trucker after watching alarming dash cam clip, issue $500 fine


After receiving a trucker’s dash cam video of a close call, Canadian police were able to track down the responsible driver and issue a citation.

The near miss occurred in Delta, B.C.

The Delta Police Department says that they received dash cam video of the incident on October 19, 2022.

From Delta Police:

As you can see, the video shows a container truck heading eastbound on the Deltaport overpass attempting to pass another eastbound tractor, narrowly missing a head on collision.

With help from partner agencies, the Delta Police Department was able to track down and speak with the truck driver in the dash cam clip.

Police say that the truck driver was issued two tickets — Drive with Due Care and Cross Double Solid Line. The two citations carry a total of 9 points and close to $500 in fines.

“We take road safety very seriously in Delta. If you witness unsafe driving behaviour, please report it by calling the non-emergency number at 604.946.4411 or online at deltapolice.ca/report,” the Delta Police Department said.
