Video shows rollerblader hitching a ride behind truck

MISSISSAUGA, ON – Peel Regional Police have issued a warning after dash cam footage of a rollerblader hitching a ride on the back of a transport truck has picked up some attention online. 

The dashcam video entitled “Stupid and dangerous”, was uploaded to YouTube back on March 8.

In the video, the rollerblader is holding onto the back of a transport truck which was heading North on Cawthra Road.

The police have also said while they have acknowledged the incident in the video, they will not be investigating as there has not been any formal complaints made and there isn’t enough information available to move forward.
