Wellesley Police, who regularly seem to stop drivers for tinted window violations, nailed the dopey and dangerous driver of this vehicle today on Linden Street, citing the person for failing to scrape off snow/ice. Who knows, the cops might have been scraping this person or a victim off the street later if the driver hadn’t been pulled over.
Wellesley does seem to be a magnet for strange snowy behavior, as we saw last winter with this guy running through Wellesley Square while dragging a tire.
WPD posted the image of the offending driver’s car on its Twitter and Facebook pages, and issued this reminder: “Take the extra five minutes to make sure you can see before you drive.”
Grateful residents thanked the police for stopping this Darwin Award prospect with comments such as: “Thank you for keeping the rest of us safe from morons like this!”
This WPD post even got a little love as far away as the New York Daily News.
