Abbotsford's Worst Drivers Offer Plenty of Excuses to Police

My home-town police are among the best in Canada despite the occasional wing-nut. Thought you might enjoy these.

In an effort to raise awareness about safe driving, Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada police are tweeting throughout the week a list of the top 20 worst driving excuses officers have heard when pulling over motorists who are breaking the law in B.C.

Below are some of the excuses given to police officers by drivers that have been pulled over during the last 12 months.
