Some say women are the worst drivers while others claim the elderly take the cake. In this situation, it’s both. A 62-year-old, Richmond Hill woman by the name of Tripta Kaushal pleaded guilty on Tuesday to an accident that happened over a year ago outside a gym in Markham. The video shows Kaushal driving her BMW X5 into a parking lot and pulling into a parking space. When she pulls in, you expect her to stop, but no, this overachiever continued the drive and rammed right up two vehicles parked in the adjacent spots. One might think she was receiving a phone call or maybe doing a bit of texting, but at 62, we highly doubt it. The reason behind the underestimation of her parking spot was left unsaid, but fleeing the scene cost her $500 and the ability to drive between 7pm and 7am. Kaushal was also ordered to pay restitution on the two vehicles damaged during her rendition of a Monster Truck Rally. Lucky for her, it seemed her BMW was left unharmed. Way to go, BMW!
Let’s just hope that this little lady thinks twice before getting behind the wheel. You never know, next time she may drive right through the front of a grocery store. Hmmm…we better start doing our shopping between 7pm and 7am.
