|I just ran across this article and to be honest I nearly fell off my seat!TORONTO – A Kitchener truck driver is facing a careless driving charge but on the bright side, his tooth doesn’t hurt anymore.Lambton County OPP say they stopped a big rig driver doing some driving dentistry along Hwy. 402 on Wednesday.Const. John Reurink told QMI Agency Saturday it’s the first time he’s ever heard of a driver being pulled over performing dental surgery.
“I’ve never heard of this sort of thing occurring before,” Reurink said, adding he has stopped drivers doing their make-up, reading a map or talking on a cellphone. “Somebody doing an amateur tooth pulling? That’s a first.”
Reurink said it all started June 30 when an officer was on Hwy. 402 in Warwick Township, near Sarnia, and a passing driver pointed him to a tractor trailer being driven “all over the road.”
The officer found the eastbound rig and pulled it over.
Cops determined the 58-year-old driver was driving so poorly because he was trying to pull out a tooth while he was driving.
