Canadian At Quartzsite - Watch out for them in Class A

[Mod Edit in title]

Class A driver from Alberta, Canada getting bad press from some Youtubers - running people off the road. They were on their way to Quartzsite.
The police have been advised. With pot now being sold in California and Colorado you have to be cautious out there.

Wow that was unbelievable...at a loss for words. That driver is an embarrassment to us fellow Canadians.

I hope the police pinch him good.

Bad drivers are everywhere! This one is a disgrace to all RVers?
Stay safe and Happy Glamping.

I'd have to say Canadians are better drivers than Americans based on my travels in Canada. That one incident is not representative of all Canadian drivers.

I have been run off to the edge of road four times in the past two years and they were all American drivers here in California. Two of them were 18 wheelers, one was a class A motorhome and the other was a car.

We were rear ended at a traffic light this past year too. Cellphones are the main culprit as far as I'm concerned.

Looks like they planned to pass, hesitated a couple of times then went for it. Couldn't see some of it for the timestamp, did they go on ahead around the truck in front? They appeared to have room to tuck in between. But yeah, not good judgment...
I didn't have sound on so I probably missed something...

This shouldn't be a Canadian vs. American issue...it's dangerous driving regardless of what State or Province the plate is from...

Perhaps, the problem was not that he was from Canada, but the brand of motorhome he was driving.

I'm absolutely disgusted and I hope he gets what he deserves and then some.
This person should never be allowed to cross the border again once the legal system in the US has dealt with him.
