‘Calgary’s worst driver?’ Watch woman hit car as she struggles to get BMW out of half-empty parking lot

A woman who was dubbed “Calgary’s worst driver,” after she was caught on camera backing into another vehicle, has received a $115 fine, police said.

Update: Even videos don’t always tell entire story. Driver in recent parking lot video was spoken to at scene…1/3 #yyc

The female driver — who spent more than four minutes trying to manoeuvre her BMW out of an half-empty parking lot — was charged with “unsafe backing” of a vehicle because she didn’t meet the criteria for a hit-and-run, Inspector Ken Thrower said.

He admitted that watching the video was frustrating, but said nerves and inexperience may have played a role in the incident.

Police haven’t offered any specific details about the woman’s driving record or said whether she was a new driver or not.

The video, posted last week on YouTube, gained traction on Reddit Calgary before it caught the attention of local police. It has since been viewed more that 2.5 million times.

Constable Jeremy Shaw dubbed the motorist “Calgary’s worst driver” and said police had “started a hit and run investigation,” in a tweet Friday.

But on Saturday, the Calgary Police Service posted a comment on the video saying the parking lot crash had already been reported to authorities at the time of the incident.

The case is now considered to be closed.

Watch the video, below, but be warned — it is miserable knowing you can’t hop in the driver’s seat and back up the BMW yourself.
